the Marten and the Fox

marten 001 - small

The marten slinks through the grass
It smiles with the weeds
Its blonde markings shimmer
Like corn in the mud
On its blackened back.

The fox crouches by a heap of stones
It bows to the wind
And its frosted fur rises
With the light of the sun
In the east.
