The Fox

I found the fox in the woods
she was cold and hungry
I gave her all that I could
I was sure that she loved me
and we were thick as thieves.

Through the winter I kept her warm
fed her all she desired
when she told me in so many words
I was the one to save her life
and she would never forget
and I would never be left.

But then one day
I ran out of bread
and wood to keep the fire
and when I woke
I found she had fled
to the house down the river
and I cried all night
because I had thought she was mine.
