The Moon


July 8, 2010 by WITS Houston

The moon is full and
night is cool far
from me I see
the night wolves creeping
to my door come in
the front door and
they come to my bed
and under the covers
is a child who is scared
and the wolf takes
the cover he sees
the child’s eyes open wide
and scream.
