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
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.
