Squirrel

Longfellow 1

A 1908 edition of The Children’s Longfellow, with an illustration by N.C. Wyeth showing Hiawatha fishing, while a squirrel looks on:

On the bows, with tail erected,
Sat the squirrel, Adjidaumo;
In his fur the breeze of morning
Played as in the prairie grasses.

Longfellow-2
