The hilltop curves
the edge of a sunrise burst
Shooting long shadows
of inestimable worth
Traced to it’s master
The shadows find their pasture
At the four feet of those born for war
Manes in the wind
Forming flames of a new kin
Their glances glisten like
Those ready for the win
White their glory
Red their pursuit
Angels descend
And heaven salutes
A new dawn breaks
As the earth awakes
To the shaking sound of
A billion lions’ roar
