'The Peregrine Falcon'

Alexander Brennan from First Form wrote this poem as an entry for the recent Junior Poetry Prize:

The Peregrine Falcon

A dot in the sky

A bird gracefully soaring.

How I'd love to fly,

Ducking and gliding,

A beautiful sight for the eye.

Diving and searching,

The most elegant of things

As it beautifully sings.

A flash -

A frenzy of feathers,

A poor creature trying to dash

And a mouse in tatters.

A clash of beaks.

And then, soaring up, again.
