Fred Maslan set this to music, and he sings it wonderfully

THE WOLF
(Georgia R. Durston)

When the pale moon hides and the wild wind wails,
And over the treetops the nighthawk sails,
The gray wolf sits on the world's far rim
And howls: and it seems to comfort him.

The wolf is a lonely soul, you see,
No beast in the wood, nor bird in the tree,
But shuns his path; in the windy gloom
They give him plenty, and plenty of room.

So he sits with his long, lean face to the sky
Watching the ragged clouds go by.
There in the night, alone, apart,
Singing the song of his lone, wild heart.

Far away, on the world's dark rim
He howls, and it seems to comfort him.


Anybody know anything about the poem or the author?

Hello,
I know this was one of the poems chosen for competition in Southern Manitoba spoken poetry competition in spring of 1969.

Love the imagery.
