Contest Description

"Fear is a slinking cat I find beneath the lilacs of my mind." - Sophie Tunnell

Compose a rhyme in four lines saying what the quote means, date the poem, and underneath repeat the quote and the originator's name of Sophie Tunnell.  The title choice is your own - make it good. In your four lines, do not use the phrase "I find".  (I am looking for sopistication in your poem - nothing pedestrian or not thought out succinctly.  Be elegant in your language, therefore avoid abbreviations such as "don't".)

My examplar for this subject is called "Wisdom à la Sophie" and is dated 2nd January, 2019.
