She stares at me
across the heated grassland.
I freeze--captured in
her bright golden gaze.
Savage and ferocious, yet
regal and majestic.
A goddess of the hunt,
the Artemis of Africa.
My eyes hold hers
for an eternity.
She rules her pride
with cool confidence.
This is the Queen of Beasts

Oh it didn't really matter which one to me, but I'm glad you liked "Lioness." I'll be commenting on your "Masquerade" in due time.

You didn't specify which poem you wanted me to look at, so I came to your page and this one caught my eye. I like the simple yet strong descriptions and the way it flows. Keep writing! :)
