Story Poems 3 Animal Index 3

A fox, in an orchard, saw some very fine grapes

    Which dangled from high on a bough.

'They may be delicious,' thought Freddy the Fox,

    'But to get them?  My problem is ‘how’?'


He jumped and he jumped and quite wore himself out

    But reach them?  Of course he did not -

And all of this jumping caused Freddy the Fox

     To begin to feel terribly hot.


He leapt up again and then had to give up

    For he’d jumped now for more than an hour,

So, walking away, with his nose in the air

    He declared: 'They were probably sour.'
