Twin Cinquains - Birds/Animals

BIRDS
Wise as an owl
Humble as the dove
Graceful as an eagle
Swift like the sparrow

ANIMALS
Bold as a lion
Fast like the cougar
Ferocious as a bear
Cunning as the hyena

    True words to describe our fellow animals and the qualities we see in them and in turn in ourselves.

    Lovely picture -writing of human characters on the cinque - so many faces in one entity.....humble vs ferocious / wise vs. cunning...... love it.

    Good read.....But it is not clear to me what you wished to convey to the reader through the cinquains. Perhaps I missed the point....

    We must learn about all characteristics from our friends around. Thank you.

    So, within the compact frame of Cinquains, you have summarized all cardinal and common traits of birds and animals alike... Enjoyed! !

    Man
    Not as wise as the owl
    more crow than sparrow
    Tendency to play oppossum
    a toothless alligato - e

    Truly beautiful, fully embracing and emboldening the very aspects of each.
