Foxes (Monday Poem)

by Mary Ann Hoberman

A litter of little black foxes. And later
A litter of little gray foxes. And later
A litter of little white foxes.
The white ones are lighter than gray.
Not a lot.
The gray ones are lighter than black.
Just a little.
The litters are lighter in moonlight.
They glitter.
They gleam in the moonlight. The glow and they glisten.
Out on the snow see the silver fox sparkle.
