Can anyone guess my riddles? :D
To romanticize me is your human need
and on my wings your souls will pierce the veil
yet on your carcass I will gladly feed
and opportunistic scavenger prevail.
In the east and the south where the tall grasses sway
I sleep and I stretch and I run and I prey
the largest and strongest of all felidae
When I open my eyes, it's best that you flee
for my gleaming white teeth are the last thing you'll see
...did he who made the lamb make me?
I'm flickering flittering in the night sky,
lighting your way into humid July
humming and settling on dew-soaked grass
please feel free to frolic by light of my ass.
In the night my prey I win,
I stalk to feed my kits and kin
but in the day, I sleep within
In darkness yet my eyes will shine
in eastern lands I'm quite divine
Are my tails one, or are they nine?
Deep, damp forests hide my light,
and travelers I tease
the honey mushroom will ignite
from feeding on the trees
Though I light your way by dark
you must not follow me
if you hear my laugh or bark
She's rational where I'm fanatic
it's true, my life has been traumatic
I'm often quite overdramatic
Hysteria and boyish smiles
my partner gets me through my trials--
I'm pretty sure you know my files!
She means you no harm; please try to believe her
a voracious housemate but so misunderstood
By the sun and the moon, by turns she will spin
in the corner, the attic, the forest, the grass
some say she wrote the world and will read it forever
If you dare to dance with the answer to the riddle
then climb through the lines and meet me in the middle
Let's show some respect and admit that she's clever
from the timorous wolf to the red hourglass
and the shy little lurker with the red violin
I'd defend them all if I somehow could,
though it's easy to guess that my favorite's the weaver.
