A Shadow In The Night
By: Hope
Age: 12

The world is silent.
The breeze is cool.
The starless sky.
The moonless night.
And on a hill stands a lonely figure,
A shadow in the dark.
Then rising danger; he can sense it.
The howls... the cries not far away!
And off he takes, as fast as lightning,
To the band the wolves' prey.
The mares where frightened,
The foals where crying.
Where was Shadow their leader?
Then there he was as if by magic.
To protect his herd until the end.
