The Phoenix is seen to decline by its preening or madness or vice.
The Dragon will fight at the hint of a slight; you need never ask twice.
The Lyorn will warn, as it lowers its horn, of the threat to your skin.
Tiassa will dream, and a plot or a scheme or an age will begin.
The Hawk in its flight, with the keenest of sight, sees all creatures below.
Until the Dzur leaps, its own counsel it keeps, and its path none may know.
Issola's smooth stillness preparing the kill gives no warning to prey.
Tsalmoth will maintain, although none can explain its mysterious way.
Vallista will tear down, and then will repair and rebuild what it breaks.
Jhereg will look on till the hunter is gone, then the refuse it takes.
Iorich recalls everything that befalls it, for good or for ill.
Chreotha's tight nets hold the prey that it gets while it comes for the kill.
The Yendi, concealed in the plain or the field, is unseen till it strikes.
The Orca will seek out the old and the weak, and then take what it likes.
The Teckla lies low in the grass, hoping no other beast will espy.
Jhegaala will shift into forms ever different as time passes by.
Athyra will find by the power of mind, and its prey will entice.
The Phoenix, reborn, all corruption will scorn, for its soul has no price.
