The Tiger…

from The Handbook of Chinese Horoscopes by Theodora Lau

I am the delightful Paradox.
All the world is my stage.
I set new trails ablaze,
I seek the unattainable,
and try the untried.
I dance to life’s music
in gay abandon.
Come with me
on my carousel rides.
See the myriad of colors,
the flickering lights.
All hail me the unparalleled performer.

I AM THE TIGER.
