Robert Finch found himself one of the last people to see the summer's illustrious ursine visitor to Cape Cod.  Not long after he passed it on the road, authorities captured the bear for relocation.  Even before this chance encounter, he celebrated the bear's trek with poetry and historical recollection of nature's unending incursions.
