Poetry|The Hare and the Fox
The Hare and the Fox is a poem about forming a friendship with someone unexpected, written by student and aspiring writer Emilie Ann Holmes.
The Hare and the Fox
The hare stumbled upon the spotted grass,
She was hot with the burden of the weather.
But in the afternoon the sun didn’t last,
Cold now; she was about to be at the end of her tether.
The fox before her smiled and deceived her eyes,
He plunged before her with a lion-like force.
Until something grabbed him and wrapped him in ties,
The hare looked up to examine the fortuned source.
She heard her heart as she perceived another fox,
He cried, ‘Don’t worry my presence is good my dear’,
She pointed at the birds and insisted they followed the flocks,
‘This is going to be a wondrous companionship’ she had no fear.
