    Poem Commentary

    The hunt prevails to feed the cubs that wait.

    The Lion Sleeps

    There is a rumble in the field
    The scramble of little paws
    Like thunder it's symbols are heard
    Like a herd of elephants roar
    Little cubs everywhere

    Carried on one leg grabbed by a cub
    Waits to be fed
    Bouncing like balls
    The jelly beans roll
    Symbols bounce off the sky 
    The lion sleeps

    An orange sky draped with blue
    Turns to a beautiful night
    The trees branches heavy with cubs
    The lioness at rest

    Night fall cools the night
    Where the servants crawl
    And animals prey
    The shaded trees protects the cubs
    WIth the sun brings a new day

    The lions will watch
    For the chance to join the hunt

    I feel like I have been taken on a safari where wild animals are observed and treated with respect. Nice.

    It's a good thing the lions sleep now and then, or there might be a lot more trouble for the other animals that constantly have to keep an eye out for the wild lioness on the prowl.......................gogant

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
