Photo prompt Photo by Tim Forest Life Deep in the forest, where critters do live The Great Horned Owl hunts in the night Deer Mice and Bats, Moths and Muskrats Snakes and Grey Squirrels, Rabbits and Rats All meals for his family back home in the hole. In the marshy wetlands more wildlife survive The moose and her calf forage for food Beside Beaver and Otters, Fishers and Mink. Birds and Bugs, Turtles and Fish all make their lives In the bogs and the streams.
High up in a tree or deep under ground
The birds in the air the fish in the stream.
They all have one enemy; defenceless against
It comes early in Spring, stays late in the Fall
Death by Wildfire is a very sad end.
