Grey Wolf


I ran with the wolves

Howled at night's full moon

Ate my prey warm

with it's heart still pounding


But moon after moon passed

Alfa wolves rose and fell

And I no longer recognize

They speak of me as grey wolf

The ancient one who howls

Up above the highest pass

The grey ghost of the ancient past


I sleep with the always cold

Looking down from the highest peaks

Even with cloudy eyes

I still can see

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
