This is a poem that I wrote for a Collage Literature class. It is a response to George Saunders's Fox 8, if you haven't read Fox 8 I highly recommend it. You can find Fox 8 online in multiple
places just google it.

Oh the things I wish I could say

To you fox 8, I fear there’s no way.

If I were still there dreaming beside you

These are the things I’d say to guide you.


Don’t let your grief furrow your brow.

Don’t be afraid to move on with your life,

Don’t morn for me, I’m happy now.

For life is too short to be filled with strife.


Don’t hate the humans for what they’ve done.

If you’re filled with hate, then they have won.

I hope that you will be forgiving,

Be filled with the joy and wonder of living.


Continue to live and learn and explore.

Don’t be afraid of what the future may hold,

For you do not know what it has in store.

So live for tomorrow, be brave and bold.


Lastly Fox 8, there is one thing I ask,

That you’d never stop dreaming, this is your task.

For you fox 8, this I pray.

Oh the things I wish I could say.
