tiger (for the love of animals series)

oh Majestic One

You bespeak
and truth

and in your mighty face

i see

This image reminds me of a passage from Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis. (Though Aslan is depicted as a lion in the Narnia books, I think this tiger suits the descriptions well.) The passage is describing Lucy’s first encounter with Aslan on her second journey into Narnia:

“Aslan, Aslan. Dear Aslan. At last.”

…She gazed up into the large wise face. “Welcome child,” he said.

“Aslan,” said Lucy, “you’re bigger.”

“That is because you are older, little one,” answered he.

“Not because you are?”

“I am not. But every year you grow, you will find me bigger.”
