The Wolf

Composed this for a play within a friend group, and later recited it in a talent show in high school. Good times.



Sharp, dangerous teeth

Yet clear, wary eye

Creature is tough, fast and unique

As the moon reflects its howling cry.


Its solemn, dignified air

Makes it in all ways fair

Yet a terror to easy prey

Makes it a terror everlasting

For all who have this to say.


Yet the wolf is also faithful

To its pack and family.

Its sacrifice and diligence

Is forever a sight to see.


As the wolf continues to lead its pack

His skills to fight and survive will never lack.
