The Fox At Sugar Creek

The Fox At Sugar Creek


As silent as snow,

there he was, a thin

tail dangling


through his teeth. On a

sudden cue he

turned away


and darted into the woods

beyond a neighbor’s yard.

A mate perhaps,


asleep in a snow-covered

den, heaving

heavy sighs


with a swollen belly, dreaming

of field mice

and sparrow eggs.
