This is my first attempt at tail-rhyme!

A meek Monet, a gentle Van Gogh
I may seem too nice and mild, though
The moon knows my true name

In lust I ascend to claim my prey
Goblins to gobble, dragons to slay
New blood to tempt my game

I brand the highest spruce with my mark
I am as white as the night is dark
Silent, floating prowl

As encroaching dawn takes starlight's place
Revealed beneath my human face
Soul of snowy owl.

I had to FAV this one. I am thinking I want to take it out and read it whenever I want. I just re-read it, and I may read it again before I finally fall asleep at my computer.
