In dark, Cimmerian forest stands a maiden chaste and fair

through the morning’s hazy mist a mighty wolf leaves his lair

the maiden, frozen fearfully feels the tread of the forest beast

she listens carefully to the west and carefully to the east

fear flows through her veins as she stands in full alert

he creeps nearer to her, his paws barely touch the dirt

suddenly, she feels his breath upon her silken throat

frightened now, she reaches out and finds his bushy coat

afraid to run afraid to stay she holds her breath in fear

the wolf sniffing her womanly scent draws nearer, ever near

the maiden feels the wolf’s wet nose along her silky thigh

the wolf, tasting her trepidation releases a mournful sigh

quivering with an unknown dread the maiden becomes alarmed

the wolf sensing her fearfulness is suddenly quite charmed

he tastes her as she turns to run, willing her feet to go

he steps in front of her path as if, he wouldn’t have it so

trembling, the maiden lifts her chin daring his ascent

the wolf stands back smiling at this development

the maiden takes one step back, prepared to run away

the wolf lowers his mighty head, as though prepared to pray

before she leaves, the wolf looks up, their eyes meet in a glance

the maiden and the wolf now know, they’ve escaped a forbidden romance.

I remember this from Open One and should tell you how much I like it - if I didn't before. Your imagination and gift for storytelling is wonderful, Poet deVine.

This is a wonderful story. You have done a magnificent job here. You have flare and had me wondering where it was going to go. I throughly enjoyed this piece.
