„The greater cats with golden eyes
Stare out between the bars.
Deserts are there, and the different skies,
And night with different stars.“
— Vita Sackville-West English writer and gardener 1892 - 1962
Context: The greater cats with golden eyes Stare out between the bars. Deserts are there, and the different skies, And night with different stars. They prowl the aromatic hill, And mate as fiercely as they kill, To roam, to live, to drink their fill; But this beyond their wit know I: Man loves a little, and for long shall die. "The Greater Cats"
