St Maurice's High School: Matthew Waters
Hidden by the darkness of the night,
its disguise given away by its brightly shining eyes.
This majestic creature bearing its dagger like teeth,
ready for anything it may encounter.
It was silent its browny-red coat blending into its surroundings,
giving it a camouflage against the branches and leaves it called home.
Its ears picked up on the smallest sounds.
Its tail swayed behind it like a candle in the wind.
Suddenly its springs to life and the last thing I see,
Is the silhouette of this beautiful creature fading into the night sky
