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.

Lady deVine, you are right. This one turned out amazing.

Thank you for your comments. I feel poetry and art go hand in hand and have used this method on my website. It's too bad the graphics slow down loading the pages or we could do this on all our poetry.

This was written before I found the graphic, and believe me I searched a long time to find just the right one.

Sneaked this one in while I was away, I think the graphic is superb but is outshone by the words.

A great piece of work! Fairy tale type fantasy with a definite undercurrent of eroticism all the way through leading up to the last stanza. MORE MORE!
