The Howl

Posted on Feb 17, 2012


From across the mountains
You can hear his call
An eerily beautiful song
In the land that he does rule

The Howl sends shivers
Down mankind’s spines
A deep fear primal
From the mists of time

But ridiculous this is
For the wolf is not to fear
To be respected and admired
A message needs sending clear

The wolf being hunted again
Because of this fear
Also because of bad education
At a larger cost most dear

One day the howl will be gone
If the hunts continue savage
Along with it the balance
This beautiful animal does manage

So don’t fear the Howl
That this protector makes
Learn to love and respect it
For nature’s sake
