Snow Wolf
by
January 15, A.S. XXXVIII

On through the night, a wolf sings to the sky
Of his lovers, the wind and the snow.
And the songs that he shares with her hold no regrets
For the hearth fires that heíll never know.

He sang to the moon as she sailed the night sky
Over fields where the flocks lay at rest.
Amidst summerís bounty he craved for still more--
For his chance to be put to the test.

Refrain
And on through each night the wolf sings to the sky
Of his lovers, the wind and the snow.
And the songs that he shares with her hold no regrets
For the hearths fire that heíll never know.

And into the autumn his challenge rang out
To each that he met on the way.
Traversing his woodlands again and again
He held each opponent at bay.

Refrain

And so the snow came to him borne on the wind
She called to him as winterís King,
Rejoicing to share with him honorís acclaim
While their songs made the winter woods ring.

Refrain

The wind from the west has swept over the land
She carries our songs on her wing;
Of home that shines bright in the light of the moon
And the wolf who is now winterís King.

And on through each night our wolf sings to the sky
Of his lovers, the wind and the snow.
And the songs that he shares with us hold no regrets
For the hearth fires that heíll never know.
And the songs that he shares with us hold no regrets
Heís at home with the wind and the snow.
