The Coyote

Last night it snowed. Tonight it drifts. 

The coyote calls from the eastern hills. 
He’d have me raise my cry with his 
to grieve the moon’s uncaring ways. 
I hear the despair in his howling 
that the moon has done him wrong. 
I will not go to howl with him. 
I will not go where God has spilled 
his star shaker across the sky. 
What care I for the fickle moon, 
that I should freeze in the winter wind? 
Let old coyote howl for himself. 
I’ve faithless loves of my own to accuse, 
and in my house I have fire and light.Image result for coyote moon paintingsCoyote Silhouette - Jean Anne Baldwin
