It brings strange stirrings, not only to creatures abed for the night, but to some who have been asleep for the winter. The hibernating Skunk, curled up in his deep den, uncurls himself and ventures forth to prowl the wet world, dragging his belly in the snow. His track marks one of the earliest datable events in that cycle of beginnings and ceasings which we call a year.”
