Marbled Salamander

I met a marbled salamander in the tall grass,
and picked her up before the cats did 
(though it was a young rabbit they were more concerned with).

I put her into the pile of wood that will someday be a fertile hugel
and told her to eat as she liked, 
but if she could help herself especially to any slugs I'd be grateful.

(Poor rabbit, 
but I'm developing a gardener's callouses.)
