Treasure Island

Guinevere Eveleigh

Canis Lupas

Canis lupus
Enemy of man
Danger for many
Wilder then the sea
Howls more destructive then the wind
You hunt in packs
That is your family
You never walk alone
You look out for each other
Eyes like moons blazing fierce in the night
Feet more thunderous then the perils of the hurricane
Freedom to envy
Soul like warriors
Ever marching forth
Canis lupus
Enemy of man
Danger for many
You are beauty
In its most fiercest form

Poet's Notes about The Poem

i saw this picture entitled the last wolf in finland taken in 1911 where the wolf was hunted to extinction in that country. it got me to thinking about how we shouldn't try and wipe out something so truly wild and free as we are destroying nature in its most destructive form. also a little bit came from watching fantastic mr fox where they see a lone wolf that is free and alone and the freedom and beauty that is in it. no animal should be hunted to mass extinction, no matter how much it conflicts with us

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
