Within Stalking Shadows

Within Stalking Shadows

A Poem by King Wolfe (Dylan A. King)

A Lone Wolf Stalking Its Prey.


In the nights final shadows,

near a field, with low cut grass, set with snow,

I stalk my lone prey, who has strayed from its

herd to a thin patch trees, and thickects, and

who is unaware of its seemingly imminent death




Stepping on a twig,

covered by the freshly fallen snow,

I have alerted the lone elk,

that even as i am not seen,

my prescence is concealed within stalking shadows.

Then, in one swift action,

the elk leaps from its graze and,

bounds for the rest of its herd,

who quickly realizes the situation,

and its related dangers,

and sprints for the nearest forestline.

In an instant they are gone,

leaving me lone, and prowling,

within the nights final shadows.
