Following Nature's Way
Following nature's way, the young male,
by Chris Embrick
enamored by the vixen, found her coupled
with an older male
Each attempt at romance lead to bitter disappointment,
as each vixen chose looks over love
Still the solitary fox searched for a companion
Finally, the wounded fox encountered a female
more comely than himself, but she too
wanted none of his love
Rejected time and again, he lived the rest
of his life a lonely fox
Finally he died in a nursing home, his life of heartaches
the legacy of a thousand dreams.
Epilogue:Human lives often parallel the natural world.
