Tiger Salamander (Eastern)
You are the most secretive mole salamander, with the soulful, bulging eyes of a frog,
Burrowed two feet deep beneath a Northern Indiana log.
You are the tiger of your mysterious underground decidous lair,
With days filled with a series of lazy, worm-eating tears.
In the salamander world, you are the most robust,
Your migration to the vernal pool driven by an instinctive lust.
You make the lower Midwest a great place to be,
If yourself, the Eastern Tiger, is on the list of possible to see.
When trying to find you, the elegant species of black and white,
I find you put up one heck of an elusive fight.
You breed in a remote Southern Illinois marsh,
When the cold spring rain and wind make conditions quite harsh.
You home is the land where Lincoln was born,
When I find you, it's always on a cool, foggy Midwestern morn'.
Your eyes are black and circular like a Great White shark,
On any boy's memory you can leave a permanent mark.
Although your existance, to some, may be quite unknown and garbled,
I know where to see the salamander that tells the story of the frontier-the Marbled.
