 I saw a Tiger's golden flank, 
I saw what food he ate, 
By a desert spring he drank; 
The Tiger's name was Hate.
Then I saw a placid Lamb Lying fast asleep; Like a river from its dam Flashed the Tiger's leap.
I saw a lion tawny-red, Terrible and brave; The Tiger's leap overhead Broke like a wave.
In sand below or sun above He faded like a flame.
The Lamb said, "I am Love; Lion, tell your name.
" The Lion's voice thundering Shook his vaulted breast, "I am Love.
By this spring, Brother, let us rest.
"
