The Trail of Life


Along the trail of life,

the wolf awaits.

As do the hawk,

and bear.

With the elk, and deer,

and surely, with the fates.

That trail, is for us all,

to share.

The white wolf howls,

to warn us.

The grey,

no longer cares.

While, the timber wolf,

smiles, behind us.

For he, our lives,

won’t spare.
