Artist's Description

A shot I was able to get this past Spring on the campus of the University of Florida. Looks like a little momma squirrel to me ;-) Here’s part of a poem I wrote about our furry little friends ;-)

Furry rodent child
your ebony eyes seem too big for your face.
Tiny rounded ears twitch alertly
anticipating danger at the slightest sound

Your spastic movements propel you
as you jerk and twitch through your day.
Navigating the tightwire of phone lines
like a seasoned circus artist,
you leap to a dangling tree branch
and scurry down a pine headfirst
as you’ve done a thousand times before.

Furry little rodent—I remember from pictures
in a childhood book of verses
you were the trusty steed of fairies and elves.

I saw you once sleeping
in a tree above my hammock,
Little white belly flat against the branch
Extremities overhanging on either side of the limb
asleep in the tree’s shade
like a tired, tiny child taking an afternoon nap.
Rose S. Williams—2007
