"TIGERS!"

Tigers, the largest of all wild cats, are known world-wide as magnificent hunters and symbols of beauty and grace within the animal kingdom.    They have cultural significance in many of the Southeast Asian lands where they are found, and are frequently a source of inspiration for art, music and poetry.    They are also a critically endangered species as a result of exploitation by humans and continuing pressures on their shrinking habitats.    Check out

It is a shame that we are killing off all that is natural in this world.

"The Tyger"


Tyger! Tyger! burning bright In the forests of the night, What Immortal hand or eye Could frame thy fearful symmetry!

In what distant deeps or skies Burnt the fire of thine eyes? On what wings dare he aspire? What the hand dare sieze the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art, Could twist the sinews of thy heart? And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain? What the anvil? what dread grasp Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears, And water'd heaven with their tears, Did he smile his work to see? Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright In the forests of the night, What immortal hand or eye, Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?
