You have not a voice, so that you can whisper.
Then how will you your secret tell?
When you say nothing.
Because you cannot.

You have not color, for the daylight to see.
So how may I know of your secret, do tell me?
When there is now nothing to look upon.
Because the light won't let me.

You have not kindness in your inherited temper.
So how can you give away so much?
When all you have is love.
To share.

You are of so many riddles.
Who, you cannot manifest,
Nor profess,
Though I know, you biggest riddle is empathy.
I did this in school some time ago - long time ago, in fact. But what does that matter! I had inspiration from the link below.

So. Enjoy. My first poetry-iece. Ish. :iconthumbs-upplz:

Let me know how you interpret it - it was an assignemnt, so you wont get scolded, if it isn't what I wanted it to be! ^^

EDIT: :iconfetchingfeast: told me where I could find the origin of the picture, so she shall have gratitud for that. She kinda saved me form copycat'ting something completely.~

EDIT2: HOLY HELL, I GOT 200 FAVOURITES ON THIS?! Argh, I'd never had though it was even possible! My heart is fluttering with your loveliness! :iconiloveitplz:

Please note that you are not allowed to use art that you do not own as a written cover even if you cite the reference. You are still in infringement of copyright laws unless you have obtained express permission to actually use the artwork from the owner of the artwork.

I suggest you take down the image or repost the poem without the image until you obtain the original artist's permission, else I will be reporting this piece directly for copyright infringement.

Please be more aware of the law in future.

Oh.. sorry! I didn't know. The laws of copyright isn't really something I've considered to read, though I probably should, since I'll hopefully be submitting more stuff and get alot of inspiration to my pieces elsewhere. You wouldn't happen to know where I could find them, would you?

Thanks for pointing it out - as I said, I'm not really familiar with the copyright laws in such detail. So thanks for that! ^^
- I will try to remove the picture, if I can work out how. I'm not much of an expert on the submitting your art-part either, sadly. ^^'

I've changed the type of document now, so you should be able to see it, as it is not an PDF anymore. It took me some time to figure out, why I couldn't post without a preview-picture, but it should be in order now!
- I hope it solved your problem. Sorry for the trouble I've caused! ^^

I still think I should've known, reading your username. But maybe that would've been an assumption. Any way you put it, I'm sorry - I know the feeling from experience, so it would be a bit rude of me not to apologize.

I think the poem is great. I think it is unfortunate that most of the favs you are getting is for the wolf, which is indeed lovely. Wolf art is like crack for half of the deviants here. And that is abnormally great wolf art as compared to most of the wolf art on DA.

But I'm happy it drew attention to your poem, because honestly, I like it more than the wolf. ;)

Ah, I suspected so! But what can I say, when I myself was allured by the image to write the poem? I am just happy, that I can bring some eyecandy to those in need.~

And honestly, you have no idea how happy it made me to read this comment! I'm smiling and I can now see why deviants artists care so fiercely for the people who help them. You're very sweet - and humoristic too! :D

I did, yes, I just missed it in my hurry to get it inhere - you see, I put in on dA, while in school, and it was the last hour of the day, we had with computers, so I was a little rushed. But thanks for telling me! I'll try to fix it. ^^

The drawing? Well, it's sadly not mine. If I could draw like that, you'd be seeing alot more of me. Something to be proud. But, it's not, only the words. I've linked the person on weheartit, who uploaded it in the first place, in the description, if you'd like to have a look. ^^
But if you mean the animal in general.. then hell yes, it is! At the time I wrote this, I was amidst reading A book called "Darling Jim" of Christian Műrk. :D

Muchas gracias! (I'm learning spanish in my freetime, heh. :D) I'm not sure what you mean by elements, but it could also be Google-translate(I'm not that good at understanding spanish yet)'s inability to translate properly, so I won't go into that. ^^
Your comment was much liked and loved, thank you alot! I tried to make it about the side of the wolf, that we can't see, and how I feel about it.. I don't know how good a try it was, but a try nonetheless! :painter:

Thanks for your comment, and I hope you'll enjoy this in the future too!
