The Fox’s Bark

I often find

The fox’s bark

Fills my mind.

 

 

How fast the light

Fades in woodland glades

And becomes the dark

Of suffocating night.

 

In the park

Where children play

His cold, sharp bark

Seems to say

You spend your day

In the sun

But the night

Blots out light

And your day

Is done.

 

(The final stanza is very long compared to the first 2 and I am not sure how the poem hangs together. Would welcome the views of my readers. Thanks. Kevin).

      Great idea, Liz. Thank you. Interestingly, when I recorded the poem for my Tiktok yesterday evening the same thought popped into my head. Sometimes, when one reads something aloud it provides one with a clearer idea as to how the poem should appear on the written/virtual page. Best wishes. Kevin
