WordPress – #Daily Prompt – Tend

Black night rolls in dark and long

Mother Wolf bays her moonlit song

Shep encircles and tends the sheep

Taking them to safety and for them to keep

Safe into this dark, cold night

Safe until the morning’s first light

Life, they say, is such a fragile thing

And to this all shepherd’s bring

A sense of peace and of solemn safety

Out of love and in their duty

In their quest of earnest nobility

They keep guard with honor and sensibility

In a tradition handed down as a given

It’s an honest day’s work that he is living
