This is a small collection of poems about griffins. All poems are owned and written by me.

The Black Griffin

The black griffin perches

The black griffin sings

The black griffin searches

He takes to the sky on his black, gloomy wings

...

Why does he stare upon barren ground?

What is there to see, what is there to be found?

The black griffin knows, in his unknown ways

The black griffin must know! Cry Night and Day

...

The black griffin knows why

The black griffin sees

The black griffin must fly

While he searches and grieves

...

King! Cry the eagles, the jackdaws, the crows

Why? The griffin is their ruler, they know

King! Cry the panthers, the lions, the leopard

Why? Their king soars above, the great cats are sure

...

The black griffin ignores

The black griffin remains deaf

The black griffin soars

Above misery and death

...

Fly, must the griffin, his wings dark and black

Fly, must the griffin, for he cannot turn back

Escape, must the griffin, from his treacherous past

Flee, must the griffin, until Earth sees its last

...

The black griffin screams

The black griffin o'er ground

The black griffin, it seems,

Is still searching for

What cannot be found.

I messed up the rhyme at the end, but I was feeling sort of lazy when I wrote this. I hope it didn't sound too bad.
