Wolf Dreams

An Animal Rights Poem from All-Creatures.org

All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.

Wolf Dreams
By Mari Van-Katwyk

Intense beautiful eyes
Gaze over the landscape,
What does the exquisite
Wolf see?
The hunter that tracks her
To slaughter her and the pups
She will bring forth at the
Next full moon.
Or does the shewolf
See a place of beauty and peace.
and a safe haven for her
and her cubs.
A land where they can grow
and frolic and run free
In the forest, and howl at the moon,
In joyful anticipation of being.
She closes her lovely eyes
And dreams of a world
Where she can live
Without the fear of being
Hunted by viscous men.
