A Wolf's Tale
L A Winterburn

As the blue haze of night; says goodbye to the day
The Wolf prowls the forest he hunts for his prey
The night lit before him, with stars shining bright
Feeling the hunger, tonight is the night

His senses surrounded by smells and by sounds
No need for eyesight, by light he’s not bound
Prowling the forest, through long grass and trees
Animals scatter; they are sensing his need

He lifts his head slowly, and howls at the moon
Smelling the air his prey will die soon
The aroma it hits him, his nose twitching with glee
Excited by prospects of what’s going to be

He starts to move slowly, keeps close to the ground
He does not scare the rabbit he’s found
He smelled it before; but then rounds a tree
Then there in the distance his food he does see

His excitement grows, his blood starts to race
Heart beating so fast but he still hunts with grace

The rabbit is feeding; he is unaware
Of death which is looming so close and so near
Standing on hind legs his nose reaches high
Checking to see that tonight he won’t die

The wolf he’s not stupid downwind he will hide
Watching his meal and smiling with pride
His lips they curl backward revealing his grin
He thinks to himself, where do I begin?

And snarling so quietly under his breath
He knows he will cause the poor rabbits death
“Come hither my pretty step off from the deck
And let me feast on your soft luscious neck”

His teeth they are weapons, as sharp as a knife
Concealed in a mouth that grips like a vice
Trying to keep quite; so steady and still
He waits for the moment; the thrill of the kill

The rabbit comes closer, so gentle and pure
Hopping around as he leaps off the floor
He isn’t aware; he hasn’t a clue
That he won’t get to see, the next morning’s dew

Then without warning as quick as a shot
The wolf pounces forward its blood boiling hot
His jaw opens wide, its weapons unsheathed
Soon he’ll taste blood oh what a relief

The rabbit still eating but now its too late
He looks up suddenly, and then knows his fate
The rabbit has got, just seconds to act
But soon he’ll be dead and the wolf knows its fact

The wolf its grip tightens around its prey’s neck
Its teeth sinking deeper down into its flesh
The soft fur he tastes as it mixes with blood
The rabbit is fighting it wont do him good

He kicks out his legs and whimpers in pain
The wolf is grinning and thinks “what a shame”

As quick as it started it ended as well
The rabbit’s gone limp there’s no time to dwell
The wolf walks away as calm as you like
Holding his feast he strides through the night

The blood it’s still warm as it drips down his throat
Walking away the wolfs starting to gloat
And now it’s all over the patter of feet
He takes his kill home through the darkness to feast

DISCLAIMER: STORYMANIA DOES NOT PROVIDE AND IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR REVIEWS. ALL REVIEWS ARE PROVIDED BY NON-ASSOCIATED VISITORS, REGARDLESS OF THE WAY THEY CALL THEMSELVES.

"Oh my God!! This is brilliant! I could actually see what was happening and feel the rabbit's fear and the wolf's anticipation. GREAT JOB!!" -- karen.
"Again WOW...excellent man!" -- John C.
"Damn...this is LLLLLLOOOONGGGG!!!!" -- Does it matter?.
""To does it matter" I'm not quite sure what you are trying to tell me. Is this a good review or a bad review? I am just asking because your review is so confusing, and doesn't really tell me if you like the poem or not. Could you please clarify what you are trying to say. Thankyou" -- The Author.
"I mean just what i said "this is loooong". The length made it boring and completely stretched out. It was more of a long novel than a poem. " -- does it matter?.
"Sorry it was too long for you "Does it matter" Maybe you should try reading something a bit more taxing, were you dont need to use your immagination. Or maybe something that requires more than a 10 second attention span, Something like a limeric?" -- The Author.
"LMAO @ the lymeric bit...that was funny. I think some people just aren't able to handle more than one or two lines, and secondly maybe "does it matter" doesn't understand some of the bigger words that you used such as the ones with more than 3 letters. "Does it matter" you should try the childrens section next time. This poem is brilliant, well thought out and executed!!!" -- Michelle.
"*rolls eyes* Maybe you should try some anxiety medicine, would that help you a bit? And by the way, i'm greatly hurt by your harsh "big words". The point of posting your work on here is to receive feedback and opinions from other people. Obviously you don't have the tolerance and open mind that requires you to accept that not everyone is going to bow down before you and love your work.Not all of the readers are going to give you a sugar coated review. Obviously you're not used to having a wide range of opinions. The point of freedom of speech is to allow us to be able to have our OWN opinions and think for ourselves. And you think that I'm immature, haha. If you can't handle negative reviews, then you shouldn't even bother posting your work on here.I'm sorry to have to burst you're little bubble, but that's the straight up truth. Have a nice day, and happy writing." -- does it matter?.
"Hey "does it matter" have you read any of my other poems? because if you had on a few of them i have recieved, I wouldn't say bad reviews but maybe not as good as i would like, and i haven't been annoyed or slagged off who ever has written it. Most of the time I say thank you to whoever has given me the feed back. Any way the point I am trying to make is that on most of the bad reviews i have had it has been constructive. not just and I qoute "Damn this is long" and in your other review it said it was a short novel? I totally agree with you about the every one having there own point of veiw though, if we were all the same and liked all the same things the world would be pretty boring. But I gues what made me angry about your review was the fact it just showed alot of nievity. Oh by the way why dont you use your real name?" -- The Author.
"I'd just like to thank your for at least seeing my point. And, i do agree that my review wasn't constructive. Um..why did you ask why i don't use my real name? " -- does it matter?.
"I'd also like to point out that it's ironic how you made fun of me for "not understanding big words"...and yet, you don't exactly spell smaller words correctly. I'm not trying to start another fight over this, i just wanted to point this out to defend myself." -- does it matter?.
"Errrr typing mistakes? I was just pissed off so didn't bother to check it ok? And besides you prob used a spell checker so dont even bother to have a go at me." -- lee.
"Oh and by the way "Does it matter" I didn't say anything regarding your lack of vocabulary, That comment was made by Michelle. So I would appreciate it if you would get your facts strait first, and about your name "Does it matter" obviously your reviews dont." -- The Author.
"See, there you go again...Must be "that time of month"...I wasn't even trying to start another fight.You think I use a spell checker? haha..that's funny. What would be the point of that? I don't strive for complete perfection.And what about my name? There you go again, complaining b/c you don't like it. Damn, aren't u ever satisfied? Oh and by the way, obviously my reviews DO matter. And thank you for NOT saying anything regarding my vocabulary." -- does it matter?.
