Lurking on fringes
At the edge of darkness
Probing for access
Stealth in action

Seen from afar
Horses sense presence
At property line
Seeking opportunity

Paw prints at den
Soft loamy sand
Cat tracks deceiving
Underestimating foe fatal

Element of surprise lost
Who hunts who now
Boundaries watched
No longer easy prey

Nocturnal half border collie half pyrenees
Vigilant bark has new meaning
Rifle kept close to protect
Any encroachment of farmstead
