The Wolf and The Owl
When you are among nature, within its walls
You may spot the Owl and the Wolf,  hear their calls
You may not think much of it at the time
But the story I will tell you will change your mind

 The Wolf  while on its prowl, for food to feed his young
Came upon a mans trap,  only knew it when it sprung
The mighty wolf was helpless and howling for aid
Bleeding, weak, much time had passed, feeling so betrayed

The Wise Old Owl in sleep, preparing to wake
Was startled by a frightening howl, weakening no mistake
He rose to search for the animal in such  despair
Hoping he would find him soon, location unaware

The wolf  feeling weak hope was fading fast
Suddenly he heard a loud hoot as the owl passed
He didnít think much of it for the two did not befriend
Getting harder to breath, one last howl to meet his end

The owl spotted the wolf,  did not think twice
Swooped down to free him, his own life he may suffice
He pecked, pulled, and  ripped  putting up an incredible fight
Some how got a log wedged between, throwing himself with such might

Popping open, the wolf slowly crawled out, finally free
The owl saw he was bleeding, eyes had a wounded plea
He sat with him until his strength finally returned
Bleeding stopped, jumped to his feet, a lesson he had learned

He glared at the owl, who distanced himself quite far
Suddenly a touch of magic the wolf spoke, how bizarre
Thank you my dear owl my life you gave me back
Friends we are forever I must now leave to join my pack

Time they spent together becoming  best friends
Getting to know each other and making all amends
So now when you hear a hoot, or a howl
Communicating they are to each other, the wolf and the owl

Great rhyme, meaningful, well versed, timely sound. I will memorize this one for my first Grandchild. A favorite.
