Cat Among The Eagles

So I'm informed that I should post this poem by Pyro and to stop tweaking with it. So I've stopped tweaking. Because it is "already good enough and will you just post it already?" So I am. This poem is for Aquila. Hope you enjoy!


Cat Among The Eagles

An eagle soaring through the azure sky
Watches with sharp talons the mountain walls
She screeches, a loud and lonely piercing cry
And like a thunderbolt she falls

Queen of the heavens she rules supreme
With golden feathers and merciless eyes
Praying on the rabbits far below
She swoops and soars, then plunges, rises, flies

A cat as black as soot with golden eyes
Illuminates the darkness as she prowls
Padding gently through the violet night
Her purr replaced with soft yet menacing growls

Tail swishing back and forth
Prowling through the grass
Hunting down the birds and mice
With eyes that glint like glass

The cat looks up and sees the stars
And shadows flying over head
An aerie of eagles, commanding the skies
The cat longs to join them, and hover instead

So she thinks of the eagles
The strong sinewy wings
The cruel feathered head
The majesty of kings

And she changes her figure
Her body transformed
A shape shifting creature
Her magic performed

To alter her being
To whatever she desires
Aquila Felis joins the eagles
Just as she aspires

Eagle, human, feline, fox
Each shape seems so new
And as Aquila unites with avian comrades
She tumbles laughing through the pristine blue
