Fox Dancing




Fox Dancing


Tall as a foxglove spire, on tiptoe

The fox in the wilderness dances

His pelt and burnished claws reflect

The sun’s and the moon’s glances.


From blackberry nose to pride of tail

He is elegant, he is gay

With his pawsteps as a pattern of joy

He transfigures the day


For a hat he wears a rhubarb leaf

To keep his thinking cool

Through which his ful-lined ears prick up

This fox, he is no fool


And does not give a good-morning

For the condition of his soul

With the fox dancing in the desert

Study to be whole
