While going about my rounds today
I gave someone a ride
I never once went out of my way
so took it all in stride

the air was bitterly cold outside
my berth was nice and warm
and I gaped when I saw the speckled hide
upon their tiny form

most often seen when days are long
and typically astride
a flower, it seemed strangely wrong
but couldn't be denied

I set it down and watched it glide
across my slick veneer
while chuckling, content inside
that life will persevere

despite the fact that I've felt stuck
amidst a rising tide
for maybe now the Lady Luck
is finally on my side.
