Swamp walk in the dark —
smelled a skunk, heard beaver slip
into the water.

Crows fussed as I walked
past the big pines. Beaver slapped
in the swamp. Morning.

Morning swamp walk
through mosquito clouds. Beaver
slapped then disappeared.

On this morning’s walk
heard THWAP—beaver’s tail slapping
the cold swamp water.

Cold swamp walk at dawn —
six geese standing on the ice
past the beaver lodge.
