Come Saturday Morning: The Tyger

Tyger companions, reveal yourselves!

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

Burnt in distant deeps or skies,
The cruel fire of thine eyes?
Could heart descend or wings 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?

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 & eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

Got any tyger stories to share? Or any wolf stories, for those of you who keep wolf-cousins in your homes?
