Legends Walk This Land

A hungry scream rips through the wealth
A lioness on the hunt, she prowls the field with stealth.
Flocks are huddled, shaken still -- she crouches on the hill
The forest stands in silence as she moves in for the kill!

From the flock the giants rise, giving roar to shake the thunder
Mighty voices unified, Who dares to come and plunder?
Guardians fight back the threat and make their powerful stand
Seek your feast in other fields for Legends Walk This Land!

Wolf pack sings the hunting song -- a murmer strikes the air
Moving as one through the field, in search of hearty fare.
Circled round the just birthed doe, calling to and fro
Dazed, confused, she tries to run through freshly fallen snow.

The sentinels rush in to silence wolfen din
They fight the pack with brutal force, the doe theirs to defend.
In unison guardians boast, tread vast around this guarded stand
Seek your feast in other fields for Legends Walk This Land!

Some years ago, a wolf attack was captured on film high in the mountains of Europe. The images are strong but the importance of the work that LGDs do can not be under estimated. Click here to view.
