I dream sometimes of Lions.
The plains call in twinned tongues to the child of
Mississippi pines, who loves the forest which
Shields the tiny sons of men from the eyes of
God, which is their wedding veil--
Those plains call "Lions! The majesty of Open and
The galling width of Deep."
      Hills and mountains
Belong to the distance, the plains are here and now.

I dream sometimes of Lions.
They run over those plains, they find trees and
Trees congregate into forests, they
Bring to Warrior Kings shade and water.
They go, cresting over this ridge and that,
         Carefree and Courageous,
   Captains of mighty bands which beat the times and
  Establish empires in the sun.
I blame LadyScipio.

*claps*

...and then those lions start eating your ponies too, because they know it to be true.

Also, by the way, I wanted to stress-test and compression algorithm I implemented last night, so I ran this poem through it. Here's your poem compressed using LZW compression*:

Yeah, it's fan art. We'll say that...

I know, but I really needed to test it!
