Between sleep and lucid thought; I drift off it seems;

to strange enchanted places; only found in dreams.

Where a dragon flies ore head; above a castle’s tower;

while down below,the peasants scream and cower.

A knight emerges from the gate; mighty sword in hand;

“I will slay the beast of fire;to save the King’s fine land!”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From a tower window; a maiden throws her scarf of blue;

“Kill the mighty dragonKnight; and I will marry you.”

Was the daughter of the King; a rarer beauty never found.

He grasped herscarf; before it could touch ground.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Its head is mine; I shall return to claim thee as my wife!

“For with your lucky scarf fair lady; I shall not lose my life.”

Upon his steed he rode toward the dragon’s lair with hast;

No fear he showed, instead the battle he embraced.

Three days passed without word; of him or of the dragon;

then beyond the gates there appeared a man on wagon.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“I implore you please let me in; I have news to tell the King!”

Tis both goodand bad; this day to His Majesty I bring’”

Droppingcanvas on the back; there lay the dragon’s head.

“I’m sad to say the man that killed it; is now dead.”

“What commenced that killed the knight, I pray thee man do tell.”

“My King, the knight stumbled on a scarf; and on his sword fell.

Before he died he bade to me; bring dragon’s head to you;

I should tell fair Princess; take her unlucky scarf of blue.”

******** What? You expected a fairy-tale ending? ***********

Ok, so the Princess got married to another handsome knight,

when he went to slay a dragon there was not a scarf in sight!

****************Happy Now? *****************
