Poem by Alexander Lawrence Posey

On Viewing the Skull and Bones of a Wolf

How savage, fierce and grim!
     His bones are bleached and white. 
But what is death to him? 
     He grins as if to bite. 
He mocks the fate 
     That bade, 'Begone.'' 
Theres fierceness stamped 
     In evry bone. 

Let silence settle from the midnight sky 
Such silence as youve broken with your cry; 
The bleak wind howl, unto the utmost verge 
Of this mighty waste, thy fitting dirge.
