Little Fox

ankh Little Fox ankh

Oh Little Fox

So like a fox,
fleeing through the moon shadows.

A glimpse of red, a flash of white
evanescent image, to haunt me all my life

Once Fox, I held you so small,
like a hamster in my hand.

My mind said,
this is the one

But my heart said, Dare I love you
when your grandsires left such scars?

Oh little Fox,
so like a vision

Were you sent to tease my soul,
or to teach me to reach for the stars?

Nan, 1989
