Food Chain

Morning brings a new day,
Calm, the air lay still,
Glistening in the breaking light,
A web will catch its prey.

Hiding beneath a quiet pool,
In yon distant mountain stream.
Patient is the Rainbow Trout,
Clear water, fresh and cool.

Mother Fox leaves her den,
Her litter now of four,
Searching for a fresh scent,
Heading down toward the glen.

Circling on the rising air,
A hawk stares down below,
Any movement, the eye detects,
Small rodents or the hare.

Cougar walks along the creek,
At night, the time to kill,
Stalking on a herd of deer,
Sniffing out the weak.

Black Bear eats most anything,
Foraging throughout the day,
Favoring a sweet handout,
Wild honey’s worth the sting.

Then there is the human being,
Sitting high upon the top,
The ability to conquer all,
Mortal fear sends nature fleeing,
