# Warm Winter Muff

Some think me clever, some think me sly
Some think me pretty, fetching to the eye

Some think me quick, I fear not enough
For some think me best a warm winter muff

This is my first one so please be nice.

I wonder whether you are

a fox.

Well, they are. Also, "foxy" is a (now rather old-fashioned, I think) term used by men to describe women they find attractive in a certain way.

Foxes are also traditionally described as quick, but ...

... after one has been caught by hunters its fur may be used to make a muff.

• For Some think me quick, I fear not enough I think the reference is 'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog' – CodeNewbie Oct 14 '16 at 5:45
• Yes, that's possible. But that sentence exists partly because foxes already had the reputation of being quick :-). – Gareth McCaughan Oct 14 '16 at 12:23
• Yep. Maybe too easy. Outfoxed or sly like a fox, foxy, and the quick brown fox were the main things. And it turns out they'll make anything out of a fox but muff was the best I could do. – user1566694 Oct 14 '16 at 14:42
• Rhymes nicely with "enough". – Gareth McCaughan Oct 14 '16 at 15:13
