                                       TIGERS LIVING FREE

                     Spectacular symmetry of gold and black
                         Audacious magnificent movements
                                  Unique elegance in gait
                               Musical in natural tranquility

                             Grandeur of kingly expression
                           Commands awesome reverence
                            Masculine in its dazzling sense
                        The power and beauty of wilderness

                              Rosy petal soft tongue lick
                           And shines the glossy black lip
                     Never think what happens in the world
                             Neither greedy nor jealous

                  Satiate with a deer ordained by the Creator
                   Never kill even a silly hare except for food
                           Gentle masculine in temperance
                     A kid can manage if the hunger is over

                              Responsible lovely father;
                     Plays with the kids; imparts training
                         Cleverly springs up on the prey
                      Up in the air like a Dancer Nobel


                   Vigilant observer of boundless empire;
                      Radar tracker of micro movements
                Disturbance of breeze on grass and leaves
          And dexterously detect even the fall of mane or fur 

              Undaunted son of nature serenely enjoy life
                           Sans thinking of tomorrow
            No stress or strain of indefinite busy human life
              It is jubilant to watch from a towering branch

                  Never trespass the civilian domain
                          Nor attack sans reason
      Yet chased and hunted by the ostensible civilized beast
           An innocent prey of treacherous brutal assault


                                                                                 21. 08. 2013
        the civilized beast= man
