The Wolf and The Lamb

The wolf, she stalks
with a hungry sneer in her eyes.
The lamb quietly smiles a greeting
shy beneath her black eyes.
The wolf plots her clever scheme
sharpening her teeth for the new snack.
The lamb, she cries
as a naive deer dries her eyes.
The wolf and the lamb
both in the barn?
The lamb disappears
never to come back

The farmer mourns the death of his lamb
and all he’s got now, are that wolf’s
black, shy eyes.

Day 10. A book that made you cry.

As sappy as it sounds, I cried while reading John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men.


I cried when George shoots Lenny. I think this is one of the few assigned books I actually read in school (that we didn’t read out loud in class).

*I know I haven’t been consistent and punctual with this challenge and I apologize if anyone was actually following it. Life gets in the way of things sometimes.
