Cold Buffet

Fire and Ice

Fire & Ice / S. Anderson

The moles won’t sleep, or try to sleep;
the moles will only tunnel deep
beneath the garden’s snow. They know
the highway-builder’s art, and go

where, also deep, the tasty seeds
await the heat and light they need.
It’s sad; so many seeds must meet their fate
because the moles won’t hibernate.

  1. but the do irrigate the earth. I enjoyed this… I don’t think moles get much poetry written about them. And, it does go quite well with the artwork. Well done.
