Miss Foxy and Hound

Miss Foxy and Hound The fox senses spring, The hound is too tired to fight, Conflict delayed, friends. The hound hides in wait, How smart are you, Miss Foxy? Nature in action. The fox loves to play, The hound takes his role to heart, Frustration sets in. Lone opossum roams in. The Hound comes to Foxy’s aid, It’s complicated. Cherry Blossoms bloom, Foxy outsmarts Hound again, The Hound likes his friend. Autumn winds blowing. They both know their time grows short, Hound will miss Foxy. Winter winds bite deep. Foxy thinks of Hound, fondly. It’s a lonely time. The circle of life, ‘Twas just a matter of time, The reaper commeth. Spring winds blow, sadly, Foxy searches for her friend, Silence all around. Miss Foxy now knows, “My foe is gone!”, with a tear, I will miss you, Hound.

I've never gone fox hunting. The fox is the most cunning animal. They are quite abundant in North America, but are (usually as road kill) hardly ever seen. Good poem Samual.

I just noticed Dr. Ram's comment and I felt the same way. This was my favorite of the two parts as well! I love the story it told (though a sad one, a part of nature) LUv, Andrea
