Mr Wolf - Poem by Leanne Henderson

What's the time Mr Wolf? She utters in the middle of her life
Time you grew wiser in your ways, he said
What's the time Mr Wolf? She utters when things are wrong in her life
Time you learned from your mistakes, he said

What's the time Mr Wolf? She utters when her children are born
Time you learned to be less selfish, he said
What's the time Mr Wolf? She utters when things don't work out
Time you learned that hope is a ‘way of life', he said

What's the time Mr Wolf? She utters when she see's that her youth is fading
Time you learned that wisdom is just as rewarding as youth, he said
What's the time Mr Wolf? She utters when she knows her children ignore her words of wisdom
Time you learned that the seed planted and tenderly cared for takes a long time to grow into a strong tree, he said

What's the time Mr Wolf? She utters when she feels like it's all too much
It's time you counted your blessings before you embrace your pain, he said
What's the time Mr Wolf? She utters when still nothing makes sense
Time you learned to stop thinking and start feeling when the answers don't come, he said

What's the time Mr Wolf? She utters when the people she loves fade away
It's time you learned that they are never far from you, he said
What's the time Mr Wolf? She utters when she realises she doesn't have any worries of her own
It's time you started to impart your knowledge to others my dear, he said

What's the time Mr Wolf? She utters when she feels peace, love and joy
It's time for you to breath it all in and enjoy it my dear
Mr Wolf said - do you know what time it is my dear?
It's time you moved over, she said
