The Squirrel by Emily Dickinson









The Squirrel

by Emily Dickinson

Whisky Frisky,

Hippity hop,

Up he goes

To the tree top!


Whirly, twirly,

Round and round

Down he scampers

To the ground.


Furly, curly,

What a tail!

Tall as a feather

Broad as a sail


Experiment to me

Is every one I meet.

If it contain a kernel?

The figure of a nut


Presents upon a tree,

Equally plausibly;

But meat within is requisite,

To squirrels and to me.
