Rating: 5.0

to search the forest floor.

and some fresh food for to score.
When all at once he saw a mouse
who looked just like the winner.
Thinking if he acted swiftly enough.
He would have his dinner.

The mouse was foraging near his home

amongst the leaves and clutter.

And if the owl had caught the mouse, he would have had a more meagre dinner. Nice poem Mark
