Last year a local library held a contest to benefit a wolf/dog rehab. center. The only criterion was the poem had to be wolf related. Here is my offering....

                                                   I Am Alpha


I am Alpha.

I was born of Alpha

Wolf pups must fight their brothers;

I won. They submit to me.

I am Alpha.


I am Alpha

I have many in my pack;

Some are brothers and sisters, some not.

I lead my pack in the forest,

I am Alpha


I am Alpha.

I hunt. All wolves hunt.

There is joy in hunting, and catching;

I eat the best of the kill.

I am Alpha.


I am Alpha.

I have a mate, my mate.

She and I together as long as we live;

We alone will get pups,

I am Alpha.


I am Alpha.

I have always been strongest.

By my thick coat, clear eyes and white teeth

I am known. I rule.

I am Alpha


I am Alpha.

I sit on the mountain’s crag.

When the moon grows large and yellow I sing.

I sing of all my deeds.

I am Alpha.


I am Alpha.

I watch my pups play.

One will challenge some day. I will lose. It is the way.

I will no longer be Alpha.

I will die.

Chip, being Alpha is not the most important thing. Being Alpha is only--only--what we make of it. Not everyone can "sit on a mountain's craig."

Dear Chip, This is a very well expressed tribute to the wolf. The fact that he recognizes that one day he would no longer be Alpha, gives him a lot of merit. Bravo pour cette belle description. Continuez a ecrire, vous avez du talent. Love Emile
