                  Two wide, watchful eyes
                  In a sheltering snowbank       
                     Seeing but unseen.

Rabbits, scattering,
Stretch the hinges of their legs
And spring to safety.

In a dappled glen,
Deer, spotted by Nature’s brush,
Outfox predators.

     Hippos on tiptoe
   Dance in a buoyant ballet
     Under the river.

    He rises early,
  Ready to reward the sun
  With his shrill good-day.
