An Odd But True Friendship  

The old wolf ran wild and free through the darkening forest.
And the minstrel loped along with him under the twilight Moon.

The bard knew no fear for he had known this wolf from a pup on.
They had grown older and wiser together in an odd but true friendship.

Once the minstrel had freed his friend from the trap of a hunter.
But then the wolf had at one time helped him fight off robbers.
Now they were allies bonded by both the good and the bad life offered.

The wolf sensing his friend tiring would slow down a little.
And then the bard would tease him by finding the energy to speed up.
When he did this he could swear that he saw the old wolf grin.

It was a game they shared as close friends and never tired of.
For it was a part of the bond that each of them knew they had.

So they ran on in the night with the wind ruffling their hair.
And the minstrel was sure that his friend smiled at him...

So in the moonlight he ran a little faster as he smiled back.

I feel the friendship
It is always nice to have a friend, human or not, knowing someone is beside you no matter what.

Keep up the good writing!

A very endearing poem about friendship between two very different beings who've managed to connect and find a sort of harmony together in their wild, free likeness. Your words remind me that friendships can truly be born between the most unlikely of individuals and people, even if some would prefer to think otherwise. Still, this poem is very inspirational in its pureness and inspires in me a sort of peace so well done.

I would love to see some kind of drawing to go with this. It reminds me of something you would see in an old fairy tale book! Honestly, I think wolves would make better friends than any human! I look forward to reading more from you!

OH NO!!! I forgot to give a star rating! 5 stars! I am so sorry!

two wild ones
Running wild seems the theme, man in vicarious unity with raw nature. No overly anthropomorphic sentimentality, just decent license taken to portray your two intriguing characters. Very dignified poem, captivating by keeping both man and beast most free.
