The dog gets loose

February rain has uncovered

all the winter tracks,

About these ads

etched out icy prints to reveal

bare patches, sodden ruts,

and the day warm enough

to delight my hound's nose -

crisscrossing the rich clues

he's working up

all the stories of winter -

About these ads

three days will hardly be enough.
