The Hunting Wolf
Eyes that with the sun their color share Turned feral, yellow is his bestial stare Raised to the moon, his cold night love Hung full-bodied midst the stars above Noble spirit paired with ruthless mind No better friends nor bitter foes to find Mighty hunter, hardy, tireless is his step Ere eyes can blink, to foe’s throat has he leapt Atop the hill he pauses, keen nose to the air Blood scent in the wind, to follow if he dare Red hunger beats in his animal veins The smell of blood teases, his beast it unchains Off goes he, easy hunter’s lope Gaining speed as he hurtles down treacherous slope Arriving he finds only rivals to slay ‘Fore they make meals instead of him this day The weapons to hand are his teeth and his skill Feint, snarl, and snap, then move in for the kill Blood and fur fly as the battle wears on Ere it has ended, three lives fled and gone The wolf torn and bloodied yet lives in the snow After three times having dealt the deathblow The eerie wolf-wail splits the heavens asunder Welcomes the storm with its lighting and thunder
Author's Notes:
I've been wanting to write a wolf-poem for a long time. The fact that I sat down intending to write it instead of it just coming made it a bit less flowy or whatever, but I like it.

Intriguing Mike, I was held to this until the end. You've described this so vividly, I could feel the night and hear the howling. Very good work! Congratulations on the blue ribbon award, this is very deserving!
