A Chipmunk Darting Across the Road

There’s a simple joy
to the happy little race
a chipmunk darting across the road
it knows we’re bringing peanuts

We take a daily walk
just lately sharing peanuts
with happy chipmunks
hiding under rocks up the road

They’re getting spoiled
darting with raised tail
not hiding their excitement at all
I can imagine what they’d say

“Here come the ones that share food!”
chipmunks say, crossing the road
I can imagine excitement in their voices
their joy unguarded
