- Harri Tenney
Watch the fox gallop the silver line,
He is not yours he is not mine,
A wild beast to freely roam,
On your wrist he finds his home
- Claire Read
Who is the vixen that deserves this charm,
a golden fox upon your arm,
chasing tails all copper clad,
this little beauty I wish I had !!!
- Mary Anderson
‘Twas Autumn and the trees ablaze,
With colours rust and brown,
The fox asleep in bracken snug,
Lived just outside the town.
No baying hounds, no braying men
On horseback sought him there
Old Reynard free from such as these
Slept soundly without care.
A passing artist spied him and
The russet blaze espied
“A copper fox! A copper fox!” excitedly she cried.
The fox was startled and soon fled
His image , though, was captured,
In copper tones, around her wrist,
Its wearer quite enraptured.
- Judith Hamilton
Copper coloured fur, burnished by the sun,
The horses, hounds and men blur into one,
As wiley foxy to the river runs,
And undetected hides until they’ve gone.
- Samantha Stanley
His copper eye passed over me,
But lost within a moment’s span
That foxy whiskered Gentleman.
- Katrina Fisher
Forever in a circle of silver,
You and me entwining,
I hold you close, adore you more,
On a grey day you’re my silver lining.
- Kath Drew
Copper Fox on the run, is it food or is it fun?
Nightly searching far and wide, head and body full of pride.
Nocturnal hunting almost done, home before the morning sun.
- Truuske Odde (Limerick)
There once was a dog fox called Topper
Who was made entirely from copper
He lived on a bangle
And tried hard to wangle
Himself off, but came off a cropper!
- Truuske Odde (Haiku)
Copper glint on fur
Pointed ears pricked with intent
He flits by moonlight
- Debra Camp
The copper fox trots… round and round, outward bound, food his daily quest…
Home, home again, goes to ground, aah… blessed rest!
- Katie Clinton
The copper fox trots around eternity
Seeking solace, seeking love,
Seeking you or me.
- Sallyann Clarke
Beautiful copper fox I’d love to have you in my treasure box
- Nicky Thomas
Sly little fox why are you here?
Oh you have come from chasing baby deer?
Now you sit gently upon my arm,
you have left the baby deer alone on the farm.
Sly little fox stay with me,
a pretty little trinket forever you’ll be.
- Hill Alison
round and round reynard goes,
from his pointy nose to his tippy toes,
where he goes nobody knows!
- Cara Gee
I opened up the jewellery box, and found a charming copper fox,
his body sleek, his eyes were sly,
He glinted in the evening sky.
I then simply could not resist
To slide him gently on my wrist
I held my hand up in the air
Admiring his wily stare
The door then opened just a crack
Reluctantly, I put him back
