Hai frens! This is my general topic (I still don’t exactly know how these work, but whatever) and I will post poems and stuffs on here!
Out Come the Animals
Over the hill and far away,
In the land of no night or day,
Out come the animals, ready to play.
Out comes the lynx,
Its pelt as black as the darkest inks,
With eyes the colour of the sea in which a ship sinks.
Out comes the wolf, as dark as the night sky,
Howling at the moon, as always, “Why?”
And all the while the cubs jump off the rocks, trying to fly.
Out comes the dragon, a mighty, fire-breathing lizard,
Which first came out of a freezing blizzard,
And learned magic at the care of the Wizard.
Out comes the horse,
And its cousins the hippicampi, pegasi and unicorn, of course,
All the while they canter over a hill where the heather is course.
Out come the animals, ready to play,
And dance in the ever-lasting dusk, never to see the light of day.
Until mankind, prancing up the hill one day,
Claps his hands, and is heard to say:
“Oh! What a beautiful land! What beautiful animals! They shall be mine before the hens lay!”
And the lynx, the wolf, the dragon and the horse have met their end,
At the hands of mankind, him and his friend.
And the animals play never again,
Finally, finally, to be injured, never to mend.
This is a poem I wrote while bored in Science: it’s about a land I made up in my imagination. Please feel free to add your own work or donate constructive criticisms.
