The Wolf, Coyote, Fox and Hound

The Wolf The wolf guards her brood, Bones of trespassers before, Death to the unwarned! My snarl says it all, The wolf rules this land, no doubt, Tread lightly, my friend. The lone wolf unleashed, Don’t trust the strange traveler, Trust is never free. The Fox The fox senses spring, The hound is too tired to fight, Conflict delayed, friends. The hound hides in wait, "How smart are you, Miss Foxy?". Nature in action. The fox loves to play, The hound takes his role to heart, Frustration sets in. The Coyote The coyote sleeps, Wild pheasants roam peacefully, Hunger soon brings death. Sunset brings brown death, The rabbit tastes too gamey, A nice change of pace. A cry in the night, The coyote is a force, Mutual respect. Original work written for The Contest: “PD’s INNER ANIMAL” ¤¤ 7th Place ¤¤ By: Samual Ronthorpe If you enjoyed this, I have an expansion to the "Fox" section of this poem, it is titled, "Miss Foxy and Hound".

I see you took the PD challenge! Good job. I remember this one. She started it a long long time ago and it closed out and got reopened. I remember it was a difficult one to do! Good luck in the contest. Andrea
