The Dancing Wolf

The Dancing Wolf

A Poem by zwartenkot

Verse one:
Her name echoes through the evergreen
Like one of those old fairytale legends
A story about a girl dancing on the edge of a ravine
You have to close your eyes and imagine

She was born strong, infused with fearlessness
And a heart built of white roses
The world knew that she meant business
Her and the pack of beasts ruled over the forest

When the howling was heard it was time to move it
The northern lights provided the spotlight
And the wind provided the music
She and the pack of wolves danced into the night

Chorus:
She danced with the wolves to survive
Because it's the only thing she knew
She danced with the wolves to feel alive
Because when she danced she had the best view

She danced with the wolves to understand life
Because she'd learned that living means taking chances
She danced with the wolves to the afterlife
Because even after death she dances

Verse 2:
The villagers would say she was raised by beasts
Instilled in her was their savage nature
And one day it would be unleashed
She would become a bloodthirsty creature

But they didn't know about her innocence
And how she made everything feel young again
It was time to stop their rumored wickedness
It was time for the truth to emerge from its den

Word soon spread like wildfire
How the forest came alive when they danced
They wanted to see the spirits fly through her
And when they saw the show, oh how they were entranced

Chorus:
She danced with the wolves to survive
Because it's the only thing she knew
She danced with the wolves to feel alive
Because when she danced she had the best view

She danced with the wolves to understand life
Because she'd learned that living means taking chances
She danced with the wolves to the afterlife
Because even after death she dances

Bridge:
One night they saw them dancing on the edge
They saw her courage and her childlike wonder
Lights danced as far as the sky could stretch
With each step it sounded like thunder

Chorus:
She danced with the wolves to survive
Because it's the only thing she knew
She danced with the wolves to feel alive
Because when she danced she had the best view

She danced with the wolves to understand life
Because she'd learned that living means taking chances
She danced with the wolves to the afterlife
Because even after death she dances

A girl like her is someone who's never forgotten
People would talk of the girl who danced among the wolves
With fearlessness flowing from within
For she was named The Dancing Wolf
