The Seasons of Rural Wisconsin
I love the summertime! I played hide and seek in the meadow and
lunched on the flowers of the luscious ladyslipper. I sneaked
up on you and pulled off your hat and ran away to hide it.
That was so fun! I ran races with my friends and even let
that timid, cowering fellow win one time.
During the fall, one of my friends died unexpectedly. I felt
such sadness and sang a very mournful song indeed. I moped
around sadly for days and even checked various hiding places,
hoping maybe Iâ€™d find my friend again, perhaps in the ravine,
near our cave or by the babbling brookâ€™s edge. He was gone
forever, and I miss him.
When we had the first snowfall, I danced and sang, jumping in
the air to grab the falling snowflakes. My friends and I ran
through the snowdrifts, and sometimes I let my less-than-confident
friend beat me to the shelter of the snow-frosted pines.
When springtime arrived, I babysat for my friend, while she
got some food for her little ones. I even skipped dinner to
help, but I didnâ€™t mind. She needed help. I helped another
friend keep safe when some bullies tried to hurt him when he
wanted to eat with the others. By putting myself between him
and the bullies, I was able to keep him safe.
I sang a wonderful song last night with my friends; we were
all a little off key, but we didnâ€™t care. Our song was still
harmonious to us! I am Beta Wolf, and I love my place in the
pack. I know that Alpha Wolf is the boss, but Iâ€™m next in
line, but a heartbeat away from being the leader. My present job
is to keep peace and to protect the often-picked-on Omega
Wolf. I love my position in this hierarchy of friends here
in rural Wisconsin no matter what the season.
