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.
