Wraith's Vision (by Wraith. B) (To see meaning look here; Meaning of Wraiths Vision)

A big, black wolf climes a hill in the fading light, Edit
so he can sing and howl throughout the coming night. Edit
The dwindling sunlight plays on his eyes and face, Edit
as he stands there tall, a proud member of a noble race. Edit
As the sun sets he lifts his head to sing, Edit
and his voice causes the very air to ring. Edit
His music rises up to where the evening stars shine bright, Edit
silhouetted against the dark sky he makes for a beautiful sight. Edit
Away in the forest, the wolf pack picks up their Alpha's song, Edit
and they all begin to howl together - loud, clear, and long. Edit
Then the black wolf hears an unfamiliar sound, Edit
he stops, pricks his ears, and looks around. Edit
Suddenly a gunshot sounds out in the night, Edit
and down goes the Alpha-wolf before he can flee or fight. Edit
Sprawled out on the hill, bleeding, the yellow fire dims in his eyes. Edit
He shudders, and whimpers, and with a final breath he dies. Edit
Then the human walks up the hill, his gun held high, Edit
looking down at the dead wolf with a satisfied sigh. Edit
He kneels down next to the fallen Alpha, his heart swelling with pride. Edit
Wondering how much money he'll get for the wolf's fine black hide. Edit
Then he takes the wolf away, an animal he holds but does not love, Edit
not noticing the Alpha-wolf's spirit watching him from Above. Edit
Now the night is quiet, and silent, and still, Edit
and no more wolf-cries sound from the hill. Edit
Then the dead wolf's pack creeps from the trees, Edit
their thick fur rippling in the cool night breeze. Edit
The run to the place where their Alpha was slain, Edit
but all they find there is a big red bloodstain. Edit
Then the Alpha-wolf's mate, her belly full of pups, begins a new song, Edit
a lament for their noble leader and of his death that was so wrong. Edit
All the wolves howl, then at last they go away, Edit
sad that their leader will not see the next day. Edit
The Beta-wolf becomes Alpha and he quickly moves the pack. Edit
In case the wolf hunter wants more and decides to come back. Edit
Yet soon they are happy again, for six wolf pups are born, Edit
and the dead Alpha-wolf's mate ceases to mourn. Edit
Two wolf pups are brown, and three are gray, Edit
soon all are playing about in the warm spring day. Edit
But the sixth pup, who is jet back, is at the center of their play, Edit
growling and bossing them around in a very Alpha-like way. Edit
He has the same noble look his father had once worn, Edit
and the wolf pack realizes that a future leader has been born. Edit
Now, years later, a new black alpha stands atop the hill and cries, Edit
while his father watches proudly from the Heavenly skies. Edit
To slay a wolf is a tragic end.Edit
To be a wolf is a soul's amend.Edit
