What Is This All About ?

The writers gathered here have adopted one of the 48 lions that appeared in "The Lions Of Lyon" series on the writing blog Shameless Words. By adopting a lion, the writers have become a member of this new writing circle. The lions have been posted in the sidebars of the writers' individual blogs, accompanied by a poem or piece of prose. Of course, it is hoped that the strength, luck and prestige of these mighty beasts will rub off on their owners! (Keep scrolling down to see the full listings of all members and their lions).

Lion 35 - Wilf's World


Lion 35:

Heart Of Oak.

Artist behind the lion:

Mireille Fulpius (Swiss sculptor).

Adoptive Writer:

Wilf at Wilf's World.

Blog Description:

If we were having a contest to find the most original, quirky blog, this would have to be way up there near the top. This is what we could call a "fictional blog", the story of a unique character, with the wonderful posts appearing like instalments of a book. Chapter One begins: "My name is Wilf and I am eight, very nearly nine years old. I would really like to be called 'Buzz' like, Buzz Aldrin but my parents wouldn't talk to me when I tried to change my name. I mean whoever heard of an astronaut called 'Wilfred'? I live with my parents who are extremely old and like to visit garden centres and stare at things". Wilf likes inventions!

Poem or piece of prose inspired by the lion:

Beneath this ancient, petrified body still beats a young heart of oak
