The Wild

Beneath the secret places 
Beyond the thickest wood
There lives out in the forest
Hidden creatures of the good

They go about their daily life
Not knowing we are near
And live out in those edges
Content to stay right there

I hear their cries at nightfall
While on my twilight rides
And sometimes I catch glimpses
Of piercing eyes and hides

I like that they’re still with us
Just past this edge of wood
To hold some piece of wildness
To search the night for food

The world is ever changing
And they’ll be gone someday
And we will be much poorer
When the last wild fades away
