In Love With the Wild

My heart belongs to the wild.
My eyes make love to the shore.
As long as I can hear the waves,
I could not ask for more.

I fell in love with the sky.
I lost my heart to the trees,
and a small wolf pup
with a goofy grin
claimed the rest of me.

He awakened the wild in me.
I loved the wild in him.
He lives forever in my heart.
His memory will never dim.

The creatures of the earth,
its mountains, fields 
and streams,
feed my hungry soul
and wander nightly
through my dreams.

As long as there is sky,
as long as there are trees,
I need little more than a roof
and a bed -
the wild's enough
for me.
