The Fox And The Hedgehog
 
1995

The hardy fox knows all the ways of the forest
Lonely fearless and swift
Like the nightly comets his distant cousins
I love him in secret, wish I could be like him


The shy hedgehog hides under a mystic bowl his prickly mood
Humble and stubborn and deep
Under dead leaves and rotting wood
How uneasy to prod but so rich inside


And I, the book born of the trees and radiant with the stars
Shall take them both for model
I'll run electronic and rest in precious shelves 

O Reader, for I am the keeper of Nature's higher truths
