the pack was on its prowl it was a relatively new one there were only six
they had banded out of need one winter with an alpha male and his mate
their union was a tenuous one at the beginning but now there was a bond
when winter hits the pack joins as one

their prey this morning was a large herd of deer the scout had found
the alpha in the lead with the scout close behind indicating the way
they were silent knowing their success was essential to their survival
when winter hits the pack joins as one

skills were improving with each hunt teamwork becoming an art
they only chose the weaker one to ensure the catch they now had cubs
culling the herd of deer improved their survival of the fittest as well
when winter hits the pack joins as one

together they downed two an old buck and sickly doe the rest escaped
dragging their kill to a safe place they gorged themselves saving the rest
they had to feed the pups and beta wolf whe stayed with her cub for safety
when winter hits the pack joins as one

the pups were still small but the band was now growing security in numbers
there were six strong pups the first for the band the alpha proud of his mate
they all feasted that night knowing harder times were only around the corner
when winter hits the pack joins as one

winter was the time they trained the pups as they started to grow learning fast
they would help feet the band on smaller stuff to keep them alive till later
when a stray deer would be found then all would feast for another time
when winter hits the pack joins as one

when winter hits, they join as one

Wolves are such intelligent creatures; we could learn much from them, but far too many these days now want to wipe them out.

As a lover of the wolf I really enjoyed this Mary Etta. If you added to it, it would make a great short story.
Reviewed by Annabel Sheila
While harsh, the imagery here is beautifully natural..I just don't like the idea of any creature dying, especially in such a brutal way. The picture conjures up images of a horrible event that took place here in eastern Canada only a couple of weeks ago. A young woman of twenty or so was hiking along a well-travelled trail when she was attacked by 2 coyotes...she died from her injuries...eerie! Good job on this nature write, Mary Etta.
