The hare and the slow tortoise

a poem by Faten Makram Ishak, Egypt - poetry writer, author, poet

                  The hare and the slow tortoise

One day
A hare came
And told the tortoise
" Oh !   What a shame ! "

He was so slow
The slowest thing that the hare has ever seen
The hare said proudly No
You cannot beat me !

The hare ran fast
When the race started already 
At the back was the tortoise
Moving very slow and steady

The hare felt  asleep
The tortoise was catching up
When he woke up suddenly
The tortoise won the  cup !

By : Mina tamer gamal
(My son who wrote the poem)
The story itself is from one of his books
