A WORLD WHERE THERE ARE SQUIRRELS

I want to be surrounded by life…I want to feel alive…

I want to share this Earth with every creature…

as we all endeavor to survive. 

 

I want to live in a world where there are trees…

where the wind makes their leaves shimmy and twirl…

where I can walk in unspoiled splendor and beauty…

in a world where there are squirrels.

 

I want to enjoy life, like the squirrel, 

I want to be, like him, wild and free

I want to take pleasure in the little things

Like finding an acorn just for me.

 

Like playing tag along the tree trunks

Like climbing high up to the sky…

Like jumping from tree to tree…

pretending I can fly.

 

I want to treat the Earth like the squirrel treats the Earth

Now wouldn’t that wow and please and astound her?

If I walked softly, took only what I needed

and left her the same or better than I found her.

 

And I want to live in a world where these lessons are taught

to every boy and girl…

I want them to understand and enhance Earth’s beauty

 

in a world where there are squirrels…
