The Wolves of the Night, by Ariana Fais

Padding through the forest on all fours,
The wind is on their backs, dirt under paws.

 

The moon is high, the trees are tall and the stars shine bright,
They are the wolves of the night.

 

Head high, up with pride, ears pinned back,
Howling together as a pack.

 

Fur rustling in the breeze, teeth shine white,
They are the wolves of the night.

 

Fast as a horse, smart as an owl,
Listen, can you hear that? it’s their howl.

 

As noble as a knight,
They are the wolves of the night.
