Wolf Poems

Wolfen Song

Leader gives

          the starting note.

Alto, tenor,

          complete the chord.

A baby makes soprano yips,

          then full chorus joins.

Mournful, yet joyful,

          song of the ages.

No tingle of fear

          from this--

A chill of wonder

          caresses my spine.

Bravo, brava,

          meistersingers!!

A Wolfen Cinquain


WOLF

social, alert

running, living, playing

caring for his own

leader


The above cinquain poem was jotted down at a poetry forum gathering, after I learned there about this type of poem.

Sinfonia Wild


It is melodious, ethereal;

not chilling.


It is haunting, mystical;

not blood-curdling.


It is a primeval connection;

a command to be one again with nature.


It is the eloquent cry

of the wolf.

The final poem in the group actually pre-dates the first one in this collection. They are all salutes to an awesomely beautiful animal.

Lizzy - this is beautiful and captures the song of the wolf so wonderfully. When you hear them, it's the sound of pure nature at her best and yes, it does send a tingle up the spine! Many thanks for letting me know about this. Have bookmarked as a favourite + voted up awesome!

Hello, Seeker7--

Thank you so very much. I'm glad you enjoyed this poetic salute. Thanks as well for the votes!

@ 'thoughts 220' Thank you very much, and my apologies for such an unconscionable delay in responding to your kind comments. This poem was one of my first writings here on Hub Pages, and I had yet to learn the ins and outs and protocols of the site.

This is a beautiful poem and tribute to the wolf.. And the photo is wonderful also. The wolf does not howl to frighten unless he/she is attacked. I enjoyed reading this and I will link this to my hub if you don't mind.
