Wolf and Mouse
by Annie (age 9)
Wolf is sleeping in the night
While mouse watches, eyes wide in fright
For he knows he must pass by,
If home is where he wants to lie.
But sleeping wolf opens one eye
As mouse tries to scurry by.
Silent wolf sits in the snow
For what the sound is he must know.
There is no hope for little mouse
Who'll never again see his little house.
He spies wolf with jaws opened wide.
They will not say he never tried.
