The Tiger's Eye


 
The tiger's eyes follows you He knows your every step Of his fang and claw beware Each step with measured care The shadowed jungle full of terror A hidden night bird calls again The moon on every swaying blade With daylight his call begins to fade The tiger follows its own path It does not know another way The end foretold in yesterday How long his habitat will stay 7/30/13

    I pictured your tiger very clearly in my mind's eye, and "the end foretold in yesterday" is a beautiful verse. Destruction of habitats, rainforests and the like is a terrible plight; kudos for shedding some light on an unfortunate subject. Great read for me! :)
