The Snow Leopard Symetrelle
by Michael Romani

The snow leopard eludes us

A Himalayan sense of mystery cat
Pads along the slope where she is at

She has learned to keep hidden from our eyes
Keeping a far distance across azure skies
She has learned from the Yeti 's echoed cries
That mystery remains the word to the wise

She watches perched in elegance 
And flips her long tail in diffidence

The snow leopard eludes us
