Painting by Trudy Lee Estes

O dreadful furry fright,
O awful creation,
Two vigorous eyes,
 Hearth inside, blazing.

O ancient predator,
Mystic wildness, aloof;
Valiant primeval warrior,
Filled with fervent rage.

O spirited persona,
Upright entity, dynamic;
Symbol of honor,
Magical, enchanted creature.

The bright, pure soul
Rare to be found,
In this phony world,
Only candid essence.  

This poem is linked to Kerry's Wednesday Challenge at IGWRT & also to Poets United Wednesday #5 and the prompt is Wolf.
