Tiger Tiger Burning Bright Screensaver

Hello all, I am new around here, and, well, l really like the site. It's really a great resource!

Got a question for anyone who remembers...

a screensaver, circa 1993 or so, that had the text from the famous poem "...tiger tiger burning bright..." this screensaver would have a tiger walking back and forth but you only saw the stripes... and the words of the poem intersected the stripes...

Does anyone know anything about it?

It exists, I ran it recently but didn't keep a copy. I don't remember which download it came in, because I've been reviewing hundreds of 'screensavers' (graphics demos) lately and I've started using the "wayback machine" to obtain them.

IF it's on m.g. now, then I can only think of one place it (or possibly a remake of it) might be: inside this "Naked Rabbit CD 2001", search locally on Naked Rabbit - but it's probably not there either.

Thanks SkyCapt!

LOL ...and what an odd but frank response! OK ...well now that we have determined that it exists, does anyone else have any, more, clues?

Can't be certain of any of this, because I wasn't trying to memorize it at the time ...
I remember "tiger" or maybe "tiger tiger" in filename, but it was on a collection which did Not have Tiger in the collection name. As you can imagine my first thought was does this relate to Tiger OSX and so I looked at the file date and saw what I think was 1995 and so i figured, no totally unrelated to the OSX. I haven't gotten any 90's software anywhere else lately so I guess it must be here on mg.

My recollection is that it's not a screensaver, as you probably know the classic OS has no saver engine, so that means 1990s graphics demos are typically in app form or a module which plugs into one of the well know engines, After Dark etc., and while I might be wrong, I don't remember having to introduce this file into another engine, so I conclude it was in the form of an applet ?
