This magnificent story, which features lions in unexpected places, describes the look of the kingly creature when glimpsed at dawn, his stern expression likened to the call of duty pulling imperatively and silently.

‘ … head uplifted in the first light of day, stern and demanding, like a patriotic duty silently calling.’
