A Puppy and His Ball

by Cassandra Dilley

The following poem won in the August poetry contest for the 12-14 year old category. Congratulations Cassandra!

Butt in the air – face on the floor
I growl at the ball – it can’t be ignored.

Orange, round, fast and quick
I’ll get that ball lickety split!

Running, jumping, pitter-patter paws.
Yipety – yap I’ve got my ball!

Proudly I prance back to my bed.
To take a snooze and rest my head.
