Tiel Aisha Ansari at Knocking From Inside shares a poem entitled Franz Marc's "Tiger."Since I couldn't get Blake's poem out of my mind, this was a difficult challenge for me. I'm cheating a bit and sharing an acrostic of the word ambush, the name for a group of tigers, that I wrote some time ago.
Tiel also wrote a sestina (just before the challenge was issued) called Cat Views. It works nicely too!
Lirone at Words That Sing shares a poem entitled Tigress.
Animal, animal burning brightIt's not too late if you still want to play. Leave me a note about your poem and I'll add it to the list.
Moving swiftly in the night
Blur of shapes in leaves and grass
Unique stripes that hide its mass
Silent steps so strong and steady
Hunter strong is at the ready
