UNIT 14: It’s only natural

Listening Page 166

Exercise 2

He is in awe of them. Evidence: ‘Tiger and devil and bard’, ‘And he sings to the stars of the jungle nights, Ere cities were, or laws.’


Exercise 3

At midnight in the alley
A Tom-cat comes to wall,
And he chants the hate of a million years
As he swings his snaky tail

Malevolent; bony, brindled,
Tiger and devil and bard,
His eyes are coals from the middle of Hell
And his heart is black and hard.

He twists and crouches and capers
And bares his curved sharp claws,
And he sings to the stars of the jungle nights,
Ere cities were, or laws.

Beast from a world primeval,
He and his leaping clan,
When the blotched red moon leers over the roofs
Give voice to their scorn of man.

He will lie on a rug tomorrow
And lick his silky fur,
And veil he brute in his yellow eyes
And play he’s tame, and purr.

But at midnight in the alley,
He will crouch again and wail,
And beat the time for his demon’s song
With a swing of his demon’s tail.
