Over the prairie,

The dew freezes,

The rain settles.

Under the woods

Animals eat berries.

The shelter snowy and deep.

I lay a trap.

I’m cold up to my neck,

Chilly weather to trek.

I stepped and crept.

Zero degrees.

A hero to freeze.

I caught a deer,

I did sneeze.

I caught a cold,

I did fear to be old.

Up came a tiger

Who scared my deer.

I fought back

So near.

I shot the tiger

To brace and stagger.

I was bit once.

I bled an ounce.

The tiger did pounce.

A grizzly bear came

In the clear.

The tiger saved me

From a tear.

A joyful expression,

I was the exception.
