    (A tiny shout out to Warren Zevon)

    I saw a Coyote with elk leg in his jaw
    walkin through the streets of Wyoming in the rain.
    He was lookin for the place called Eli & Shreve’s, gonna get a big dish of gluten free chow mein.
    Aaahoo, Coyote of Wyoming

  14. Cassandra Says:

    Fish gotta swim…
    Birds gotta fly,
    Coyotes gotta howl…
    but they don’t know why.

    He doesn’t know why
    He howls to the sky.
    He only knows that he must.
    And that no other feeling
    or release can compare
    to a soleful call
    that cuts
    through the cold winter air.

  17. Mimi Says:

    Shreve, I send you and your boy the warmest of birthday greetings! Thank you for sharing your life, talent and remarkable sojourn into the heart of Wyoming and quite frankly into ours as well.

  18. Steve H Says:

    Nothing clever — I just know that that is one sweet song. I love listening to, and occasionally getting to watch, the songfests around here (East Bay hills of CA) of Charlie’s cousins.

    I submitted my entry Monday morning. After awhile I did not see it in the list, so I tried to resubmitt it. A screen message said that I had submitted a duplicate entry.

    Figuring that there was a large backlog, I kept checking the list, but I still don’t see it.

    It was from Cindy and the entry was “Half-tone.”

  32. Holly Says:

    Just because I can!

    Sometimes Charlie and your pictures say things best expessed in more universal languages that human words. I think this is one of those times.

    Nor could I title the sound of a litter of coyote pups trying out their voices around the den on a summer evening. Its a language of the heart.

    But what a happy birthday song!

  38. Marguerite Says:

    I am listening to an opera on NPR and it seems like the male voice is coming from Charlie!
