  • "Tyger, Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?"[1]    
Simple: Tiger, tiger, your fur shining as bright as fire, in the forests at night: what great forever living artist could be able to describe exactly how frightening your appearance is to us?
