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.
