Legend of the Dragon Breath - Part 10

Time sure passed like water

things flowed like the stream,

Excitement too short to ponder

the mad rush world of wonder.

Frail lives of humans are quickly gone

unlike immortality that never wan,

Above the ground so temporary

the Wyrm finds everything quite a contrary.


Recalling again its misadventure

in those briefest time that transpired,

Everything here fades and fake

rocks carved out and chiseled stakes.

Golden windows and gilded frames

all routinely need be maintained,

Easily thrashed and charred to black

by even its simplest flickering acts.


'So unlike my former caverns dear

subterranean gold filled chambered weirs,

I do not know what I'd have done

had you not helped me now my dear human.

Tell that Bard King I shall honour his deal

return to my cavern forever sealed,

But should harm comes that Priestess fate

his shall follow that King of late.


For what fleeting madness

tis realm has been,

Ruled by monarchs

all sick and full of steam.

A blood thirsty ruler

that one I ate,

Yet comes a Jester

offering a maiden on a plate!


Had I not my fill

with those bleating sheep,

Stuffed to the brim

I did fell asleep.

Only to be awakened

by a rude poke to my skin,

What kind of a nincompoop

would do such a thing.


Tell that Priestess

fair maidenly lass,

Her heart convinced me

to forgive all past.

My breath of fire

no longer diss,

I have forever lost

the fiery gift of the abyss...'


With the dragons apparent demise

and the castle restored to nice,

Events became once again normalize

to men and lords and lives.

Yet people will always whisper

even to this date,

That dragons are evil salamanders

fiery pyromancers of hate.


Exactly as Ovid sang it

you can read in one of his play,

Proof in the Metamorphoses

whence a Dragon was shown to be flayed.

Wrote it 'down on the left

where the long Draco lay,

A shape of stone marble

unmoving' forever it stays...


Authors notes:

Ovid or Publius Ovidius Naso a 1st Century Roman poet who wrote the book Metamorphoses.

This conclude the short story of "Legend of the Dragon Breath"
