Tracks in the Sand


Tracks in the Sand

Who made these small tracks with toes of three?
Not a bird, not a lizard, not a crab.
Not a cat, not a dog.
Not a rat, not a possum, not a person.
A shy agouti, the local “rabbit”,
comes out at dawn and comes out at dusk,
leaving only its tracks out at midday.
