Fulfilling an Unfulfilled Project- College Magazine PART IX

The Snow Leopard
Art:Karma Wangchuk

Higher! Higher still
Than the tricky towering peaks,
Challenging the prowess
Of this awe-inspiring denizen;
In the land of Yeti,
With its jagged rocks
And abyss of death.
Vast, virgin snow
Numbly awaiting gloom
In its unseen clutch.

But the spirit sneaks up undeterred,
Nonchalant stare, shunning vertigo,
Humbling every peak and pass.

Rejoice in this feline face!
Pass the tidings of its regal grace!
Always there and always aware,
Princess of snow,
Princess less known
To this dreary world of restless souls.

Karma Wangchuk (Lecturer)
