CALL TO FREEDOM by Paul E. Berube

Gray Wolf

Wild and noble
Broken by man's ambitions
Hate fills yellow eyes
And fear causes you to snarl

Trust is cipher
Your instincts teach survival
Trapped in a world
Smothered by bitter confusion

Life offers little comfort
The noose tightens
You are captive in a land
Where freedom was boundless

Heed the bay of your ancestors
They summon their pack to lair
Follow the ghostly shadows
And dance to a new moon

Reminds me of the great Jack London novel. I have a weak spot for animals. This poem makes me want to rush in and save this wolf, despite the fact that I would be bitten because Man has forced him to mistrust. The third verse especially got me....

wonderful write - almost a prayer for wolves ... I have high respect for them, and they are too often maligned. Thank you for this touching poem.
