Tiger, Tiger

Tiger, tiger of the land
Tiger, tiger makes me quiver in the sand.

Tiger, tiger of the night
Tiger, tiger in the moonlight you shine so bright.

Tiger, tiger of the moon
Tiger, tiger come back soon.

Tiger, tiger you are my strength
Tiger, tiger for me you always went that extra length.

Tiger, tiger you are mine
Tiger, tiger only to me are you very kind.

Tiger, tiger don't run so slow,
Tiger, tiger I love you so.

Tiger, tiger I'm just a lad
Tiger, tiger I am so sad.

Tiger, tiger why does this tear come to eye
Tiger, tiger knows not why.

Tiger, tiger in my heart there will always be a sore
Tiger, tiger runs no more.

  5. Fun piece, unexpected of who it be... I too was thinking lover.

  6. Tiger, tiger in my heart there will always be a sore
    Tiger, tiger runs no more.

    I read this several times and liked it more with each new reading. The last time I read it I could vividly see the boy...for a minute I thought the lines I selected were about some golfer...
    Enjoyed it very much, thanks.

  7. Interesting. Not a big fan of repetitive lines, but it's nice to see people trying different things. Keep experimenting with your work. :)
