I. The mysterious white and black with glistening teeth,
The graceful walk,
The dangerous roar
II. The snow capped mountains camouflage her yet the strips stand alone
Her stripes, her eyes piercingly black
III. Wondrous and mystical to her
Beautiful and fierce to me
Connected as the same
IV. A dark cave on the mountain top with a burst of light shining through
The shadow of her face, her body, her long tail all visible, but I’m the one invisible
V. To the other person she is not important
Just fur; skin to take
A lot of money they’ll make,
But why?
Do you now see as I see her now?
Every shocking part of her is just another thing that declares her beauty
VI. Now she sees me and I stare back
No threat now, but still a mystery
She stares,
Glaring into my eyes
My gaze
But she turns and walks away
Back into the mountains as a glistening white stripped angel in the distance
