The Fox With The Candy Heart

there once was a fox with a candy heart
she loved trotting through the forest
and making art

long ago in a darkened land
she was hunted by
evil man
she ran, she scurried
her heart pounding in fear
the hounds released
she felt death was near

curled beneath
a twisted oak
they devoured her candy heart
that loved the most

so left with her little fox self
she was
to create a new heart
out of branches and mud

but soon she added glitter
and ribbons and such
turning her heart sweet
and soft to the touch

If someone eats your candy heart
do not allow an emptiness to start
make anew out of beauty and art
so says the fox, with the Candy Heart.
