  • Poems that mentions the Fox

    ~ The Snooty Fox's Revenge ~ (humor)

    This is the tail of the fox who was snooty
    he wanted to give the hunter a whack on his bootie

    Just to let the hunter know how it feels
    to be rapidly chased over the woods, dales and across the vast fields

    Decked out in his hat, boots, tailored red blazer & riding crop
    to run the hunter so hard that the hunter just wanted to drop

    Faster & faster the fox rides on his horse
    chasing the hunter and all the while laughing, of course

    From Leeds, to Bath, on to Oxford, Dover, Plymouth, Exeter & even Stonehenge
    it's just the snooty fox getting his revenge ~ bjf (c)

    tail (vice tale) intentionally spelled incorrectly

    Inspired by a pub sign that I photographed of a caricature fox in his english hunter's riding outfit and of course the name of the pub: "The Snooty Fox"

    ~ Lizard's Star ~

    Lizard's star shines in an obsidian night sky
    Thrush bird sings upon a rose-gold sunrise
    Kit fox slumbers in his sandstone burrow at noon <<<
    Cougar prowls during a midnight quartz moon ~ bjf (c)

    ~ Sleep without Care ~

    Tranquil Douglas fir woods
    near the Spirit Trail
    searching for grubs
    a black bear tumbles an old log
    over a frost-kissed forest
    floor wrapped in thick fog
    Acorn woodpecker and
    squirrel work together
    gathering food
    for the long days of
    winter ahead and
    animals soon to
    enter hibernation
    make preparation
    for their comfy beds
    fox and bear <<<<<
    skunk, squirrel and
    hare, soon to settle
    down to that
    sleep without care ~ bonnie j. flach (c)

    ~ Hawk's Eyes ~

    Hawk's eyes are swifter than his wings the most important thing otherwise he dies
    then we would not see those magnificent figure eights in the sky

    Hawk's eyes can see far and wide rabbit had better hide perhaps he should be as the mole
    and stay longer in his hole

    Hawk's eyes can look way up and down squirrel had better stay underground
    and like the fox, hope that he isn't found <<<<

    Hawk's eyes can see far and wide Mouse had better hide perhaps, like a bird, it is best
    he stay longer in his nest

    repeat stanza #1 ~ bonnie j. flach (c)

    ~ When will the rain come back ~

    The roadrunner birds does not run
    nor jump does the rabbit called jack
    for there is far too much sun
    oh, when will the rain come back

    The songbirds have flown away
    only the hawks fly
    all hide from the heat of the day
    while vultures wait for a creature to die

    The diamond back does not coil
    the fox remains in his den <<<<<<
    for the sun just boils and broils
    until the rain comes back again

    The roadrunner bird does not run
    nor jump does the rabbit called jack
    for there is far too much sun
    oh, when will the rain come back ~ bonnie jean flach (c)

    ~ Artemis (Diana) ~ a little something from Greek mythology

    Sprinting over hillsides
    through the woods you leap
    Lovely goddess of the hunt
    chasing every wild thing
    You sleep beside
    the cypress
    you're brave and
    show no fear
    you catch the
    birds of the sky
    and the
    fox, rabbit and deer. <<<
