Lost Dylan Thomas I think.

"Never and never, my girl riding far and near
In the land of the heartstone tales and spelled asleep,
Fear and believe that the wolf in the sheep white hood
Loping and bleating roughly and blithely shall leap my dear, my dear,
Out of a lair in the flocked leaves in the dew dipped year
To eat your heart in the house in the rosy wood"

I have that Dylan Thomas wrote this but I cannot find it or a mention of it anywhere. If anyone knows the name of the piece, who actually wrote it, and where I may find it, I would be truthfully thankful.

It's the first stanza of 'In Country Sleep', published in 1952. It's a long poem, in two parts - you will find it in his collected poetry, and it's mentioned here -
