Wolves in the village - A Zen-story

Once upon a time in a quaint village small
Hungry wolves caused fear to befall
They devoured houses and fields with delight
As the village lay dormant throughout the night

At dawn, the grip of terror 's strong
“They’ll come again before too long!
How shall we rid ourselves of this wild pack?"
They pondered deeply to keep them back

A master lived within that humble place
Who ventured out into the open space
One night he went without a word to say
Immersed himself in a strong and peaceful way

Indeed, the pack arrived as night grew dark
Their hunger evident and wild, a fearsome mark
They circled round him in a curious trance
Sniffing at his ear, his knee, and his neck's expanse

Yet he remained in tranquil, peaceful grace
The animals couldn't harm him in that place
Two even lay down by his side
All became gentler, ambience clarified

Leftover meals, whatever they could find
People fed the animals, being gentle and kind
The fears vanished, the torment ceased
The village 's protected, the feud released!

Book by Jürgen Wagner:


Bäumen begegnen / Mein Freund, der Baum: Baumgedichte von Jürgen Wagner

Es wächst ein neues Bewusstsein heran, dass Bäume nicht nur Holzlieferanten sind, sondern Lebewesen mit einer Eigenart, einem sozialen Netz und einem inneren Wissen und Fähigkeiten, das wir noch gar nicht kennen. Zusammen mit Bildern und Informationen würdigen die Gedichte die Bäume in ihrer Art und ihrem Wesen und können durchaus eine Brücke der Freundschaft zu ihnen sein.
