Pale moonlight, barely breaking through the clouds
The creature wanders restlessly through the darkness
Stepping firmly, never dropping its pace
Its entire body honed to perfection
Finally, the clouds split apart and the moon reveals itself
Silver light illuminates the land and the mountains
It dances, it runs, it trembles with unbridled power
And with an entranced roar, it shows its true form
