My Heart Belongs to the Wild Things

My Heart Belongs to the Wild Things
A Poem by Kathy Meitzer McLin

My heart belongs to the wild things.
From whom I have learned moderation, patience, resourcefulness and balance.

Where caring for their children means preparing them for life on their own and when they find their mates begin the cycle of life anew.

I’ve seen unlikely friendships formed and acceptance unquestioned.

I’ve learned there is a time for silence and time for singing.  A time for unfettered joy and a time of restraint.  A time of unity and time to be alone.

I have seen strength, tenderness, self sacrifice, endurance  and times when one must simply stand their ground.

But above all I’ve been blessed by the Perfection of their Love.
