Poems About Lions
Author: R. Cliff
Proud and strong, the lion roars
His mane a golden crown
He rules the savannah, wild and free
A true king, unbound
With piercing eyes that seem to see
Into the very soul
He stalks his prey with stealth and grace
A hunter, whole and whole
But he's not just a fearsome beast
He's also a loving mate
He cares for his pride with all his might
A true and noble fate
So let us honor this great cat
Whose strength and beauty shine
The lion, king of all the land
Forever wild and divine
Author: J. Sterling
Lions, fierce and strong and true
Their love is fierce and wild
A bond that lasts a lifetime through
Their hearts, forever entwined
They roam the savannah, side by side
Their roar a testament to love
They stand united, side by side
A bond that's sent from above
Their love is pure, it knows no bounds
It's a love that's meant to be
A love that grows with each new day
A love that's wild and free
So let us honor these great cats
Whose love is strong and pure
Their bond a shining beacon of hope
A love that will endure.
Majestic lion roars
Golden mane a crown of pride
King of all the land
