Hear pitter patter

Slow fall drops of rain

On my window sill

 

Mind wandering back

Memories that my mind drain

As I sit so still

Let me tell you how

I had chanced upon wonder

Story to be told

 

Keeping to myself

I walked the eerie forests

Thinking of the wolf

 

You see he was fierce

At least then they told me so

Don’t step on his toe

 

For he’d snap and snarl

Open wide his horrid jaws

Eat you in a bite

 

So I walked in fear

My pace so slow and cautious

Me the hunted deer

 

Suddenly he pounced

But oh it was just in glee

He yearned company

 

Feeling like an elf

I extricated myself

From his mighty paws

 

Whether glee or not

I don’t think that he forgot

Taste of our sweet meat

 

Straightening his knee

He then begged me not to flee

Laid out cutlery

 

As I quaked and shook

That twas mere wolf finery

Here I would end book

 

He then turned around

To some object on the ground

Picked it up for me

 

And lo now behold

There upon a plate of gold

Lay a piece of cake

 

I gazed at the cake

Spinach carrots and some cream

It must be a dream

 

Please would you now taste?

And if you’d have it spicy

I’ll add curry paste

 

Dead woman’s supper

Was first thought that did occur

As I took a bite

 

Oh so heavenly

I almost kissed him in joy

He was such a chef

 

I then stayed a while

With wolf that baked vegan cakes

It was tea for Two
