Wolves are intelligent
and majestic creatures.
They are sneaky
and silent in the day.
They come out
at night and glide like birds
flying through the night’s sky.
Their paws are silent when they run.
You can’t spot them in the day,
but they can spot you.
And you can’t
hear them in the day, but
at night you can hear them howl.
Their howls are like a smooth
breeze flowing through the air above you.
They stand tall and proud.
— Alicia Knestis, 5th grade
