Howling Wolf - Poem by Gemma Heaney

I am the one who walks alone
Upon this land my footprints roam
Passing over ancient stone
I am the one who walks alone

Sometimes upon a chance
I may meet my pack and do a dance
But after we have a play
I leave them all and head away

When the day turns to night
& all the creatures are out of sight
the full moon does appears
From a distant u can hear
me howl it echo’
through the years

I am the lonely wolf
I am an ancient soul
I am the one who some fear
But why do hunters slayed my kin
Only for to wear their skin
I will never understand
I am the ancient one
who roams the land

On every full moon that does appear
I raise my head to the moon
with no fear
I howl oh I will howl
& it will echo’s through the years
