Shadows grow

Tall in the winter

Knock and knock

Who is there

Frightened cried the little hare

Is it big bad wolf

 

The light gleamed

Shadows extended

Shying day

Keen on hay

The hare asleep pretended

It was wolf at bay

 

Stories wove

Confusion’s webs strings

Three piglets

Squealed in fright

Through the thickened woods they drove

Falling out of sight

 

Hushed and mum

They gathered the hearth

Spilling Earth

And sawdust

They drove all wolves into slum

Of nothing the sum

 

Child reveals

The raging terrors

Laughter peals

Through the night

Shadows extension of light

In coin twin birthright

 

Web woven

Within waning stars

Only Heart

Keeps the Sight

Unwoven coils delight

Twining Venus Mars
