The Grey Squirrel


William Copper


Chorus TTBB a cappella


A setting of an English poem from the years of World War I.

By the composer of Lovelife Dances

Like a small grey
sits the squirrel.
He is not

all he should be,
kills by dozens
trees, and eats
his red-brown cousins.

The keeper on the
other hand,
who shot him, is
a Christian, and

loves his enemies,
which shows
the squirrel was not
one of those.
