There I Will Be Muskrat – There I Will Be

There I Will Be

Busy am I in the wide wetland span
I share with those of the stout Castor clan.
Classified rodents though both we may be,
my unique lineage seems a strange mystery.
Sometimes my lodge is of grasses and sticks,
or I dig out my home in a bank that is thick.
Unlike my “cousin” whose flat tail looks squeezed,
mine’s like a rudder making swimming a breeze.
Though mostly aquatic I’m sometimes on land,
but never too distant from water I am.
When you visit a marsh please search carefully,
and keep on the lookout, for there I will be.
