This was from several years ago. I had an inspiration for another animal poem. I love animals, and the mountain lion is one of my animal totems.
Eyes sharp as an eagle and black as night,
Coat sleek and tawny-colored,
Claws sharp as a dagger,
And fangs deadly sharp,
I prowl the mountains,
Keep to the shadows,
I keep to the night—it is my home,
I live for the beauty of the darkness.
