This poem, by Australian poet Judith Wright (1915-2000) is a simple image of dogs chasing a hare in the light of the full moon. The hare is imagined as jumping into the moon, while the dogs can only howl at the moon in frustration.

Judith Wright spent much of her life involved in campaigning for Aboriginal rights and fighting against environmental destruction.
