Mirror Poem Inspired by Wolf Calendar Photo

There’s a new Folding Mirror poem on fmpoetrywordpress.com, and it’s one close to our hearts, as it combines the two things most important to a werewolf: a human and a wolf. Yes, it’s a poem created by a human about a wolf.

Romuléon – caption: ‘Faustulus discovers Romulus and Remus being suckled by a she-wolf on the bank of the Tiber; behind, he entrusts the infants to Laurentia. With text below and decorated borders containing the arms and badge of England.’ (Photo credit: The British Library)

While there are many examples of wolves making friends with humans, and even bringing up human babies, such as the Remus and Romulus legend about the founding of Rome, there is no existing evidence of a wolf writing a poem about humans… or anything else for that matter. Wolves are too busy being wolves, and doing wolf things!

Wolf Mirror Poem

Hi, it’s William Wolfsworth, poetry correspondent at the greenYgrey inspired by legendary Romantic poet William Wordsworth.

Yes, Marc Latham has created and posted a new mirror poem onto fmpoetry, and I’ve imported it into the greenygrey world this morning. Here it is:

Wolves 2012 Calendar, October Star Wolf

fire melting gold
fall full flow
leaves oval shaped
seem to poke
fun behind rump
tongue-twisting
on thin reaching branches

both stand on rock, green and grey coloured

under strong running legs
tree-like
paws resemble  plinths
keep head grounded
feminine tongue smiles
sunrise eyes shine
below mountain peaks

Nature Poem about Earth’s Sun Cycle Seasons

It is nearly August. While spring in the northern hemisphere feels like a time to restore sunshine levels, late summer feels like a time to store up for the winter. Here’s a Folding Mirror poem with that theme:

Scandinavia 461

Preparing for Summer Departure, No Time for Laughter

Two days left of July
yesterday,
the sky seemed to cry.

August, the last summer month
northern,
does the sun think we’ve had enough.

September and October last
breaths,
warm winds keep winter at bay.

our star doesn’t really leave, it’s our planet’s circling weave

It’s the south’s turn to face
inwards,
Australasia and Africa tilt.

Our annual repetitive cycle space planetary gravity
journey,
365, and a quarter days.

Colourful leaves before snowy scenery
tomorrow,
six months before next spring.

Scandinavia 181
