POEM- WOLVES by Shauni Cooper

I hear their melodic voices

And yet I feel no fright

I hear them calling from afar

Swift creatures of the night

They dance upon a blanket

Of fresh, white winter snow

Graceful ghosts of the shadows

With piercing orbs that glow

Forgive me for staring

But your fur gleams so brightly

With trickles of ice crystals

That melt ever so slightly

Run handsome creatures

With the strength that you bore

Sing to your bright guide

As you have done so many times before

Your presence strikes fear

With your white fangs and gleaming fur

But your elegance shows beauty

With quick feet that are a blur

Follow your path wise creatures

In loving packs, so tight

You are overpowering, you are wolves

Eternal masters of the night
