‘The Hairy Hand’ by Ronnie, Colyton Grammar School

The Hairy Hand

Curving, winding, undulating
The road glides through the moor.
A peaceful ride, 
Surrounded by nature,
Wild, green and beautiful.

Suddenly, a hand!
Large and hairy,
Wrestling and bustling with my own;
Trying to veer me off the road,
Danger imminent.

Tumbling, falling downwards;
Ground, sky, ground, sky,
Crashing to a halt between the hills,
Unharmed, but shaken and scared.

The rabbits take no notice;
They've seen this all before.
This is why locals are careful
When they go on the moor.
