The fox boy (audio)
The young man waved his family off and watched them drive away.
On his face was fixed a smile but his heart was tinged with grey.
With a sadness in his spirit and a tear in his eye,
He took himself outside so he could contemplate the sky.
All around him nature crawled and buzzed and hummed and flew.
Crickets bathed on blades of grass amidst the evening dew.
Deer roamed the garden and the woods beyond the gate,
And farther out, the howling of a fox without a mate.
The young man heard the howling and he felt the fox’s ache . . .
