The panther moves in silence blending with the night
To prowl the kindred spirit searching for the light
In days of peaceful slumber he walked among the dreams
To rest on plains of passion to dance among the kings

The hunger rises in him beckons with the call
Of ancient times for searching before the fatal fall
For once he was a warrior brave and pure of heart
Feared by all who faced him lethal in the dark

Then there came a maiden with honor in her soul
To gaze upon the warrior to pledge her heart of gold
The love that welled inside them was deep and truly felt
They now belonged together and searched for no one else

The Gods that ruled the planet were angry from the start
Cursed the warrior maiden forced their souls apart
To live alone together was more than they could bear
In a desperate moment they chose to scream despair
The angry Gods that listened laughed and laid a curse
The brave and mighty warrior would forever walk the earth

The form that he was given was black and soft of foot
To walk the liquid darkness as the mighty night earth shook
With eyes as green as emeralds
That shone as daggers in the dark
The pure and lonely maiden was lost with out her heart
Destined now forever, doomed and torn apart
The green-eyed midnight panther
Would forever haunt the dark

As for the golden maiden you can see her now and then
As she rest upon the water and walks within the wind
If youíre very careful and quite beside the lake
As the shadows fall around you and night begins to take
The panther walks among you
Softly by his side is the golden maiden
The green-eyed pantherís pride
For love is everlasting and canít be cursed away
The panther and the maiden are still as one today

I love Panthers
Though I do not normally dig rhyming poetry, I will definitely make an exception for this poem, it is beautiful. A lovely story, softly written. Great work, I think you captured the soul and magic of this elusive creature perfectly.

Mythical Meow!
This has a very mythical and dream like quality. The care you seem to have taken in writing this piece really comes over. I'm not usually one to praise this style of poetry as it's a little conventional for my liking but I really enjoyed reading this piece. I could feel myself getting lost in the world of Warriors, angry Gods and Maidens.
