Winter Drama

Witness the assortment
	of tracks in the snow.
What was it that made them
	and how far did they go?

Big ones and little ones
	criss-cross through the brush.
Get out the field guides -
	to know is a must.

Coyote and Jackrabbit,
	Bobcat, Jumping Mouse;
Meadow Vole, Mule Deer,
	and even Sage Grouse.

What an interesting tale
	of pursuit and flight.
The events of a yesterday
	or maybe a night.

Now wouldn't it be keen
	to sit in on the show?
Observing all the drama
	that took place in the snow.
