A beautiful wolf poem

Post by china-sorrows » Sun May 01, 2011 8:10 am

I didn't write this, but its so beautiful and sad I just needed to share it:

Yellow Eyes
Joan L. Van Vels

We've roamed the wild country
My beautiful yellow eyes,
Side by side we've hunted
Shadows dancing on northern skies.

There have been times of plenty
We were content and serene,
Peacefully sleeping
Dangers few and far between.

We've also known much hunger
Ribs protruding from each side,
Mournfully we howled
When our starving cubs had died.

And then there was our first winter
Romping thru the glistening snow,
Tasting each crystal snowflake
Falling gently to and fro.

Ah my dear, sweet yellow eyes
I've known no greater love,
Without you, I am nothing
Our wild souls are one.

And now you lay there dying
Steel jaws upon your frame,
Life's blood slowly seeping
I whimper your sweet name.

Helpless, I watch you struggle
Chest heaving with labored breath,
Steel jaws clenching tighter
Winds whisper the song of death.

The blood has now stopped flowing
I know the time is near,
And you will forever leave me
My love, my life, my dear.

And now my world is silent
Your struggles now have ceased,
I lay my head upon you
And know you are at peace.

Perhaps your soul has lifted
To skies where eagles soar,
And there you'll greet your brothers
To run with them forever more.

And someday I shall find you
In the heaven's so far above,
And when our wild soul's unite
There'll be no greater love.
My love, my life, my dear,
The steel frame draws ever tighter,
Tnd I know you are at peace,
And someday I shall find you
In the heaven's so far above,
And when our wild soul's unite
There'll be no greater love.

I've heard this poem a good deal; specifically on here. A lot of users will re-post it and claim it as their own or not cite the author..etc. It does need a discussion thread, though, so thanks for making this. xD

Very beautiful and forlorn. Where did you find it?
