Littly Red and Her Wolf

Location

Somber eyes full of tears
little red was lost
far worse than she feared

she had blissfully traversed the path of love
now she was trapped, without a beloved.
She believed the lies meant to trick poor red
for she'd followed her heart, and not her head

Little red wept alone in the forest that night
praying a prince would save her from her plight.
But not a single soul came, save for the owls,
and all that could be heard was hungry wolf howls

Trembling in terror, eyes wide with fright
a large looming shadow walked out of the night.
An enormous wolf, his pelt all jet black
came out of the shadows, and eyed his new snack

Licking his chops, his teeth showing as he grinned
Little red knew if she ran, that she could not win.
She fell to her knees and abandoned all hope
while the wolf cocked his head and watched her mope

"My dear, why are you sad?" the wolf suddenly said
"I've come to help you, I don't wish you dead!"
Startled red looked up with a stare
she wanted to believe it, but did she dare?

A tall handsome man, all clad in fur
was knelt down, and offering his hand to her!
"You must be tired, here, you can ride on my back,
I will take you home, you can stay with my pack."

The handsome man turned back into his wolf form
and when red climbed on, she no longer felt forlorn
Red now had someone to love,
her knight clad in fur, sent from above  Somber eyes full of tears
little red was lost
far worse than she feared

she had blissfully traversed the path of love
now she was trapped, without a beloved
she believed the lies meant to trick poor red
for she'd followed her heart, and not her head

Little red wept alone in the forest that night
praying a prince would save her from her plight
But not a single soul came, save for the owls
and all that could be heard was hungry wolf howls

Trembling in terror, eyes wide with fright
an large looming shadow walked out of the night
A enormous wolf, his pelt all jet black
came out of the shadows, and eyed his new snack

Licking his chops, his teeth showing as he grinned
Little red knew if she ran, that she could not win
She fell to her knees and abandoned all hope
while the wolf cocked his head and watched her mope

"My dear, why are you sad?" the wolf suddenly said
"I've come to help you, I don't wish you dead!"
Startled red looked up with a stare
she wanted to believe it, but did she dare?

A tall handsome man, all clad in fur
was knelt down, and offering his hand to her!
"You must be tired, here, you can ride on my back,
I will take you home, you can stay with my pack."

The handsome man turned back into his wolf form
and when red climbed on, she no longer felt forlorn
Red now had someone to love,
her knight clad in fur, sent from above

This poem is a fantastic turn of events! I love how you twisted the story of 'little red ridding hood,' job well done!  I was actually dancing along with the rhythm of the poem, and singing too!
