Have you seen my little friend?
I call him nimble-feet
Because he moves so swift and fast
Is nimble – and discreet!

He runs away with all my nuts
And yet is never caught
His striped coat is ever bright
And clean – without a spot

My Squirrel Friend [Illustration by Sudheer Nath]
My Squirrel Friend [Illustration by Sudheer Nath]

He helps himself to all my things
Which I would never lend
And yet I cannot do without
My frisky squirrel-friend!
