Food Chain - Poem by G.R. Gaus

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,


Poet's Notes about The Poem

How interesting to observe the way nature works its natural design…..
