Haggard Hawk

Rating: 5.0

A haggard hawk curiously dropped
A chip of stone on the water of a pond
And created a wave of tricky trap
A frog jumped up thinking that
It might be a new hope, a new life
But from nowhere a crane swooped down
And swallowed it alive
The pond could not punish the culprits
So begged pardon with folded hands.
