Animal Eyes

by Someone Invisible   Nov 4, 2012

As night comes to fall,
listen to hear the wolf's lonely call.
He calls to the others,
mother, sisters, and brother.

More lights brighten the sky,
fallen trees that once stood so high.
And what's more to pity,
in their place stands a brand new city.

A she-wolf lonely and without shelter,
he rushes to help her.
Both without a pack,
they watch each others back,

Then out of the darkness,
comes a human huntress.
But she sees they're on their own,
and decides to leave them alone.

She watches as the pair leave,
and in her heart respect starts to weave.
Animal eyes shouldn't hold so much care,
but indeed she saw it in their wary stare.

    Beautiful. They say that wolves mate for life. I would like to think that a hunter would have sympathy in their heart. An optimistic hope that humanity can be merciful. Loved this. best wishes Milly x
