The Hunter

A hunter must always let nature lead
Deafening the silence of my fair glen,
Stirring in the burrows and fallen leaves,
The nests in trees, the comfort of the den.

Yet who prowls there at dusk or light of dawn,
Or the patient owl in darkness of night.
What hungry wolf preys on a helpless fawn
Or eagle on unwary fish in flight.

In the midst of wood we are the prey.
In the midst of life we are all the same,
Struggling to remain and just simply stay.
In the end … no one but ourselves to blame.

As we wander, aren't we like all the rest -
Both hunter and prey, we are truly blessed.

Craig Cornish

    Nice. Reminds me of the short story Most Dangerous Game. Have you read it?

    Just a wonderful sonnet - now you must do another one! Come vote on which to use as third? [remember if we don't want to make the hunter a scary critter killer we have to make him fill the role of potential prey /to the dangers of getting lost, hypothermia/ broken bones wolf pack?/, then we can get him home safe - without killing or butchering anything in the sonnet] L & L

    I'm here clapping, master! Terrific! I guess this sonnet is for Deborah's Crown, you did it great, Craig. It's not fair!! I think I'm going to quit ... I don't want to embarrass myself! LOL.
