Let Sleeping Wolves Lie


We've come to an understanding,

my wolf and I.

That at least for now,

to let sleeping wolves lie.

He's grown tired of the chase

and the pursuing of me.

So he'll hibernate for a time

and just let me be.

My pleas were heard,

when I begged him to leave.

He actually took pity

and granted this reprieve!

Now it's time that I enjoy life,

while my Lupus is on 'stand-by.'

I'll be perfectly content

to let sleeping wolves lie!
