    The Legend Of The Great White Wolf

    Come young and old
    Come gather around
    Come sit by my fire
    And don't make a sound

    I will tell you a tale
    I will tell you a story
    Of the great white wolf
    And all of his glory

    He traveled alone
    So the legend does say
    He traveled at night
    In search of his prey

    It happened one night
    As he roamed his domain
    An indian child
    The wolf did attain

    She was lost in the woods
    In three feet of snow
    She was frightened and hungry
    With no where to go

    The wolf took great pity
    On this trembling child
    All cold and wet
    And lost in the wild

    So off through the woods
    The wolf he did run
    In search of some food
    For this little one

    Upon his return
    The wolf he did bring
    A morsel of food
    For this little thing

    Then offering his body
    To keep the child warm
    The wolf kept her safe
    From the terrible storm

    Oh, I have to agree with Angellightwolf - please write more, great story in rhyme and meter. You are telling a great story and I for one would love to hear more. Great write - I have American Native heritage in my family blood and this is quite spiritual. Great write

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
