Gwilym Williams has seen a thin fox

A Thin Fox
 
a thin fox, hard as nails,
thin, arthritic, rheumatic,
septic eruptions on sore feet,
keen nose and sorry bag of effluvium and entrails
up for the erectile, hard frost, somewhere to go,
 
lakeside path, through snowdrop, primrose,
daffodil, an early bee,
an ermine's fur turning brown,
an effusive gushing of butterflies
gold finches and flycatchers,
 
two seasons exist in equilibrium
the rest is fusion.
