The Fox 15th November

Hello there,

I have said I enjoy the sound of words.  I also like making them up. Just for fun here is a small poem by anon which has had an important influence on my writing :-).

The Fox

Forth from his den to steal he stole.

His bag of chink he chunk.

And many a wicked smile he smole

and many a wink he wunk.

It’s six years since I posted this little poem. I’m delighted to see, from the comments posted, that it’s a favourite with others too. I followed up the comment from Angus McPhee below and was thrilled to be sent the scan from his mum’s autograph book. It inspired me to do some more searching and repost the poem in the hope that more info would come up. If you want to know more about this poem please go to my new post, Origins of ‘The Fox,’ a poem of mystery and delight
