EQUINOX FOX Vernon the aqua fox, swim fast 'ere Summer's fall; wade wide-streamed Autumn

's lull. Your rust red coat and socks of white will fade at snowfall's call and, hunting just to keep kits full, at moon you'll howl and nip but fail at Winter's icy onslought gale. These equal days of light and dark will soon make way for short days and stark with cold and biting winds, whose wide streams are too hard for play. There! Beyond the river bends, you see the sun of spring arrive and all the world is back - alive! Now struggle fox with coat of red, to out your den, back from the dead, and greet spring's dawn and all it sends. -------------------------mindbringer, 16 September 2009
