Image for the poem BROTHER OF THE HUNT

BROTHER OF THE HUNT

On the trail of a deer
I met another hunter
Someone whom I once called
My wild canine brother

Thousands of years ago
We set aside our fears
To hunt together the bison
And the fleet footed deer

He, with cunning and speed
I, with sharp flint and long wood
Together we conquered the prairie
And every forest that stood

Then when I no longer needed
My wild deer hunting friend
I slandered his good name
And his bloodline I condemned

Today, like him I am loathed
For being a deer hunter
So maybe itís time, once again
To call the wolf my hunting brother
