Poem - Wolf at the Window

The poem “Wolf at the Window” was inspired by a cartoon that spoke of avoiding the wolf, that it takes luck to achieve this on a daily basis, and how the wolf only needs to succeed once.


Wolf at the Window

The wolf at the window is held at bay
waiting with patience at our dismay
knowing that all must walk among
forest paths beyond the vale

safety breached to attain
something more than the disdain
of the fools that wish for more
than memories now deplored

the haunts exist by aftermath
in the forest where killers bay
knowing windows lead to doors
allowing all to damn their souls

it takes one chance for the claws
to take the flesh from safety’s arms
before the window is declined
what lays beyond will have its time.
