Ayuh to Z Challenge - X

My theme: Book Titles A to Z written by Maine authors,
and a poem for that title each day for the month of April.  The poem is not about the book, but is written with the title as inspiration! 
There was no book that began with an X or EX, so I went with a word that ended in X.

Here is my double Haiku for foX .

Welcome to X!


 X is for
Fox
by Kate Banks
Fox
fiery-tailed red fox
sunset prowler, night hunter -
beware, slight tailed mouse
wary, bright-eyed mouse
field dweller, harvest nibbler
red fox waits for you

In Fox, a little fox, guided by his parents, learns to hunt, bury his food, cover his trail and run fast, until he is ready at last to go out on his own.

Brought to you by the letter X!
Y is next.  Yes, I found a Y.  Yes begins with Y.  So does Yellow.
And then there's You.
See You tomorrow...or Yellow or Yes.
Guess.

    1. Car accident today. Almost wasn't here for the end of the alphabet. All safe tonight. Walked away from it miraculously! So I'll be back for Y and Z!
