The dog gets loose

February rain has uncovered

all the winter tracks,

etched out icy prints to reveal

Recommended: Could you pass a US citizenship test?

bare patches, sodden ruts,

and the day warm enough

to delight my hound's nose -

crisscrossing the rich clues

he's working up

all the stories of winter -

three days will hardly be enough.
