Leopard

Leopard, high up in a tree
your body and burning eyes I do barely see
and your camouflage makes you melt in
where you dwell untamed and free

and I wonder at the Creator's great art
that constructed you apart
from the lion, lamb and gazelle
and you presence drives fear into the heart

[Hata Bildir]
