COUGAR MAMA

She may be an aging cougar

But she’s fiercely on the prowl

She is also called “Mountain Screamer”

In the land where the coyote howl

 

With the kittens grown and gone

She maintains her precious den

Reclusive and territorial

She safeguards, alone once again

 

Tough and taunting she stalks

Avoid becoming her foolish prey

Best to roll over and play dead

She will retract her claws and go away

 

Cougars are born blind

Over time acquiring strength and grace

Crepuscular in nature…

The night seems to glide with the chase

 

Cougars can paw your heart tenderly

One day you will long for this dying bread

When you finally find out her true worth

On your love she will freely feed

–Nuala Molloy Moran c 2008
