HISSI DAY SPECIAL

A Hissi Day Tribute
By Elfwick

Out in the bushes,
'Neath the dwarf trees,
It lies in wait
And smells the breeze.

Its forked tongue shoots
And darts mid-air,
Tasting the excitement
We're about to declare.

Hissi Day is here!

But say it softly,
And do not shout,
But shake and slither
And squirm about.

Ride up the banisters
And climb down the walls,
Moving silkily,
Throughout the halls.

Give a soft hiss,
Then slide out the door,
Into the meadow,
Then down to the shore.

Then gather the firewood,
With our slithering throng,
To build a big bonfire,
And hiss our coy songs.

Bring a friend along!

We do this in tribute
To our slithery friend,
Whose path is not straight
On the way it doth wend.

So shake, rattle, and hum,
Or coil into a ball,
To celebrate the slinkiest
Neopet of all.

Ode to My Hissi
By Bounce257

My slender slithering serpent friend
Sweeps silently across the ground,
With supple wings, an avian blend,
Arriving with barely a sound.

His regal head is held up high
As a crafty smile crosses his face;
Not a cute Cybunny or Shoyru is he!
He has more class, panache, and ravishing style,
He mingles intelligence with his grace!

Golden eyes bore into you, an invitation to play,
But heed my warning, for it is true:
His games are not for the meek.
Any Hissi from here to Kreludor
Is deadly at hide-or-sssseek.

Transfixed we watch him, independent, untamed,
And the glittering scales vanish away,
As this unique creature, loyal and true,
Leaves our feet as quickly as it came.

My slender slithering serpent friend
Sweeps silently across the ground,
With supple wings, an avian blend,
Departing with barely a sound.

Beware the Hissi
By Ecriture

With fangs as sharp and long as knives,
In any climate, this creature thrives.
Aided by its feathered wings,
This creature claims its place as king.

Up on land, or in the skies,
Beware this creature's piercing eyes.
For when it catches sight of you,
There's not much else that you can do.

Try to run, try to hide,
But its nose is its guide.
Its keen senses pick up on your trace
And guide it to your hiding place.

Although its body is lean and sleek,
Do not be fooled, it is not weak.
For when it has you in its grasp,
You cry, you scream, for air, you gasp.

And if you manage to escape
From its contorted streamline shape,
Forever you shall tell the story
Of the Hissi's deadly glory.

Hissi Day
By Scenette

Moonlight shining below,
Neopians dancing to and fro.
Underneath many a glistening star,
the life of a Hissi has begun from afar.

The Hissi slithers silently across the ground,
hardly breathing, nor making a sound.
To his abode he is heading,
a hard night's work, he's ready for his bedding.

At dawn, the Hissi heads to the river,
in the water he cannot help but shiver.
Scales dazzle in the morning sunrise,
what lies ahead today is a great surprise.

The Hissi indulges in his daily business.
He notices that the count of Neopets is less...
Something is going on; where could they be?
Why, they are busy elsewhere, you see.

The Hissi, feeling cold and alone,
slithers on down to his homely abode;
inside waiting are many a friend...
it's Hissi Day, start a trend!

Celebrate until the break of dawn,
dance out on the lush green lawn,
under millions of stars, fireworks, too;
Everyone in Neopia is celebrating,
So why don't you?

Have a smashing Hissi Day, Neopians!

Island Hissi Chant
By Anjie

Resonating tribal beat,
Dancing tropic breeze so sweet,
Distraction from the endless heat,
A complex rhythm does repeat.

Feathered frenzy, headdress sway,
Chant and cheer, it's Hissi Day!

Serpents dance and chant aloud,
Motions ancient, music proud,
Those hissing voices lift so loud,
It echoes through the calling crowd.

Feathered frenzy, headdress sway,
Chant and cheer, it's Hissi Day!

Beige and tan dappled with white,
Those Island patterns, vibrant sight,
Spirals gleaming in the light,
A celebration spans the night.

Feathered frenzy, headdress sway,
Chant and cheer, it's Hissi Day!

A ritual as old as time,
Those Hissi voices chant and chime,
In serpent language, rant and rhyme,
To form a chorus so sublime.

Feathered frenzy, headdress sway,
Chant and cheer, it's Hissi Day!

Feathers decorate each head,
Brightest hues of crimson red,
As creatures move, they span and spread,
By tribal beat the group is led.

Feathered frenzy, headdress sway,
Chant and cheer, it's Hissi Day!
Do you hear the happy cry?
Those snake wings lifted to the sky,
They celebrate as day drifts by,
Not fading as the night is nigh.

Feathered frenzy, headdress sway,
Chant and cheer, it's Hissi Day!

Hissis swaying to and fro,
Their motions spiralled, idle, slow,
Hypnotising, brilliant, though,
A trick that only their kind know.

Feathered frenzy, headdress sway,
Chant and cheer, it's Hissi Day!
