The Wolf and the Moon

by Anna K.


A wolf howled to the moon one night

complaining that it was too bright and

that the wolf's prey could

see it clearly in its light.


When Dark lightened to Dawn and the

Sun rose out of the horizon the wolf

stood and howled to it saying

it was too hot and the pack could not run long

distances with heat like that scorching

their backs.


The next day the sky was black.  The wolf had

caused an eclipse.  And all went well.  The wolf

pack could run without getting tired and

catch its prey without being seen.
