I like the picture and the poem. I am afraid I am not very poetic but this poem was fitting for where I live. We often hear the black wolves howl as they run across the ice on the lake. It is a wonderful sound but makes one shiver as well as the owls.

It takes a lot of skill to make the reader shiver with so few words.
Excellent.
