White Lightening - Poem by Patricia Kelley

She found the wolf in the cemetery when he was just a pup.
He was like a gentle cub.
The wolf was a sign of protection to protect her from harm.
He would become her guardian angel and right arm.

He was so small the only remaining survivor of the litter
She felt so sorry for the lonely critter.

She named him White Lightening.
He had a special likening.
He had trails of white streaks that ran through his coarse hair.
She could hear his loud bark in the air.
Wherever she went he followed.
He became her second shadow,
White Lightening was his name.
He was tame now and no longer part of the wild game.
When she went to sleep at night he laid right beside her.
His ears would go up when he heard sounds on the floor.
She knew that he would protect her from unwelcomed visitors coming through the door.
He guarded the sounds on the floor.

Then one night she was awoken by a loud noise, the wolf barked and growled.
It was a prowler. Her took one look at White Lightening and shut the door and ran.
White Lightening proved to be her protector.

Her angel of the night, she needed no reflector.

To him, she was his savior.

White Lightening proved to be her protector.
