Wolf At The Door


The wolf is at my door
His knock consumes my mind

He has a basket on his arm
I'm running out of time

I peek through the window
Of my hopeful side

I peer into his basket
I simply want to hide

How can I be much braver
The wolf is growing big

He's eating up the garden
And even ate the pig

My chickens are in mourning
Because he stole their eggs

The horses have all run away
Why must I stand and beg

Please go away you wolf
And give us all a break

Please leave us to our sorrows
For there's nothing left to take

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
