Young Writers in Action: Rabbit

RABBIT
by Shreya, 12, MN, USA

The brown and black fur
Little nose twitching
Ears moving to every noise
The beauty of the animal is in plain sight

Dashing through the woods
Sneaky as a snake
Army crawling under fences
Hoping not to be ate

Dashing at each other
One jumps up
So close to crashing
Over and over they play

Lying in my backyard
Eating the grass
Acting very lazy
Like a sloth in a bath

Hoping not to be eaten
Playing again and again
Acting very lazy
A rabbit is that
