Dry Sea Dragons

Poetry By: PaulChafer

Tags: Dragons, War, Peace

After posting 'Ancient Slumber, many readers felt there was another verse required, I did write more, but could not make it work as I would have wished. However, I have created this poem with the unused lines and added more to give it a flavour of its own.

By the shores of the Dry-sea.

Beyond salt-crusted sands,

In deep, deep, caves,

You will find dragons.

Long ago, in ages past,

Men and women were selected,

An honour to ride these great beasts.

Winged creatures of giant stature,

Sharp of tooth and talon.

Then foolishly, the dragon-riders fought.

The battles, bloody and deadly,

Swooped across scorched skies.

Then the dragons' took their leave,

And burrowed deep into the earth,

Where they slept away the centuries.

Occasionally one would surface,

In a lake, a fjord or a loch,

Emerging by secret ways,

To see if mankind still made war.

Until at last, mankind has long gone.

The Earth is dry: blisteringly hot.

Perfect for dragons to bask,

Upon the salt-crusted sands,

By the shores of the Dry-sea.
