The Timber Wolf


My Favorite Documentary about the True Nature of Wolves

Howling, Stalking, Prowling,

Quick to flight,

Dark as night,

Fearsome sight.

Stealthy way

Of the silent Gray.

Piercing eyes,

Terrible size.

Padded paws

Keeps natures laws.

Swishing tails

Pricked up ears.

Loss of home.

Pack hunts alone.

Wily ways

That bring lengthened days.

Misty haze hides

The silent Gray’s ways.

Forests surround

Not a single human around.

Soft knowing eyes

Giving proof

Of strong family ties.

Contented sighs reach the skies.

Myths and guise

Filled with men’s lies.

Tranquil fury.

Quietly genteel.

Not in a hurry.

Power that is real.

All scars nature

Will heal.

Mysteries and Legends entwine

About the beautiful

Creatures who live

In the forests of pine.

The truths

Moonlit nights

Will reveal.

As the wolves cries

Ring with

A simple appeal.

To the readers: Wolves are creatures of mystery and legend, Often painted as cruel, vicious, beasts. In reality they are gentle creatures who avoid humans as much as possible.

There has never been a documented case of a healthy wolf attacking a human.

Don't let what you don't know shape your opinions about nature.

Thanks Shesabutterfly. I have always loved wolves and thought they were very misunderstood. This is my way of helping others to see that.
