Raccoon Roof

A garden cottage will have critter sound
of course – the insect buzz, the song of birds,
the punch of bodies on the roof, that pound
of mammal paws. Conveying such in words
I say the cats are silent as on ground,
and squirrels are surprising-loud, like herds
of larger creatures, but the biggest thump
is raccoon-made, so bass it makes me jump.
