Footprints in the Snow

“Footprints in the Snow,” Friend, Jan. 1972, 29

Footprints in the Snow

A rabbit must have scurried by

In search of food to eat.

Here are his pawprints in the snow—

A trail that is quite neat.

A tiny fieldmouse whisked along

A little while ago.

Here are his nailprints and a line

His tail left in the snow.

A dog raced past into the woods.

I see his footprints there.

And here are my prints in the snow—

Snow walkers everywhere!
