Little Ones

Little Ones

A distant howl is herd across the tundra,

The sound shaking the ground like wild thunder,

Wolves join in a chorus of joy,

For pups have arrived, great howls they deploy,

As the little ones come out to greet their first day,

Emerging to meet the pack, always wanting to play,

New scents, sounds, faces, and skills they must know,

For soon the alpha pair howl a warning, "Soon it will snow!"

Young wolf pups must grow husky and strong,

As the winters here, are cold and long,

The little wolf pups smile and giggle,

Small bones they chew on and nibble,

Not a worry in their hearts,

Not a worry in their souls, their lives just beginning to start,

Yet with the leaders these young ones have, wise and much alive,

Food will be plentiful, guaranteed, they will all survive.

  1. very nice poem to go with a beautiful pic, barb! I have many wolf prints in my den, such a wary, but gorgeous animal.

  2. I love wolf images! They represent so many different things. I like reading American Indian lore about the wolves. Fascinating!
    Thanks, Yo! :)

  3. wonderful post. i am also attracted to the wolf rather than coyote which we have plenty of here in

  4. You've made a lovely picture to go with the poem - well done :-))

  5. Thank you, Lorilynn and Jonie!! :)

  6. I love the image! I am very sad about our wolves here. They are loved by some and hated by many. Politics has now come into play and it is a very bad time to be a wolf in the northwest. I have personally made many enemies among the mindless wolf-haters.

  7. Terry, those kind of people are ignorant and would be my enemies also! So sad for the wolves.
    Thank you for stopping by! :)

  8. I absolutely love wolves and you created a lovely pic and beautiful poem to go with it!

  9. Oh, this is gorgeous. I know someone who loves wolves and would fall in love with this image. Lovely framing too. And a great poem to go with.

  10. Thank you so much, Anna! The frame is made of a wolf fur image. :)

  11. Amazing how mothers of so many species are so protective over their young. Beautiful image and lovely poem.

  12. Very true! Thank you, Preston! :)
