For contest--What kind of animal are you? Here's my answer



Fiercely protecting my young
Respecting elders with reverence
Willing to share what I've learned
Knowing the wisdom of silence

I see beyond the horizon
I travel far on foot
I sense the things around me
I never have to look.

My spirit floats at sunset
It yearns to be outdoors
Instinct leads with each step
A red tail above me soars

The keen hearing envelops my senses
Nothing's undetected from me
Even the shallowest breath
I discover it with ease

The forest is mine to admire
Of Its scents I never tire
each day I thank the Great Spirit
who gave me the wolf as a guide.
