The Fox

by Zeynep, 15
Westchester Academy of International Studies, Houston, Texas


The trail illuminated the darkness
with the green lanterns hovering over it
Fireflies surrounded them
leaving whispers of their wings behind
I glanced over at the cunning fox
briskly running through the woods

And when the fox found its prey
frolicking through the emptiness of the night
a sinister look appeared on its face
And everything

became voiceless
The trail became a faint red
when the modest dusk came along
