SILENT VOICES CAN NEVER BE STILLED
From Vegan Handbook - Author Anonymous
Dedicated to Jason, who at a very young age, in farm country and never having heard of vegetarianism, refused to ever eat meat again when he was told where it came from after losing his treasured calf to the slaughterhouse.  This poem may be reprinted at any time by anyone, without permission.

I stare at tree-covered mountain across the way,
Shuddering at repeated volleys.

In those woods walks beauty
That can't be destroyed or dragged out by hunters.
They've cheated themselves
The corpses on car hoods are devoid of the Presence
Still in the woods,
Shadows walking quietly with those who come in peace.

The author was a pre-vet student, but dropped out of school the week before having to watch the upperclassmen practice on living animals. Most of her poems are auto-biographical.
