Fear of the Dragon Forgotten
- 4 Views
In a far distant land where an endless mount stands A hidden truth remains forgotten Passed down through the years fearsome tales balladeered The Legend of the fear of the dragon Several hundred feet tall wings that cut castle walls A fire-breathing beast Armageddon With great sharp talons it severs as it devours whoever In flames roasts all alive in split seconds When stories were told they all lived in fear of the dragon Offered a bounty in gold, if only one who'd defeat it was gotten One day a stranger arrived with a brave heart inside He said I will alone slay your dragon All I need is my sword and to give me your word That my deed nor will I be forgotten 'Fore your journey begins you must know said the king If the beast sense your fear he'll awaken Through the dark you must tread 'mongst the bones of the dead Where before those whose courage forsakened You believe I will burn, but I alone will go face the Dragon And With its heart I'll return, and then no more you'll fear your Dragon So with his blade to defend him at the lair of the beast As he entered the darkness almost breath and heart ceased He un-trembled his fears lest they awoke from deep sleep The snores in the depths from the dragon Finally he approached his gargantuan host, slowly sparkling dragon emerald eyes opened. As the majestic arose, the intruder's heart froze, 'til the behemoth did tower above him Stand back beast from Hell, now your reign here has fell, he said the time is for vengeance upon thee But with accusers surprise, just a tear filled the eye, as the dragon's sadness fell a-from him Brave Sir disarm, I've brought you no harm why must you need kill a dragon? I beseech thee defer, as your eyes can concur, I'm just alone and forgotten For uncountable years I've been imprisoned here With a longing to live without bringing all fear For the shape I true am has been with lies only smeared Only tall tales were told of the dragon If you trust me a life I will pledge in return To the world I'll bring warmth never flames thought to burn Take me back to your folk so my truth they may learn And never you'll be forgotten Said the brave lord, I'll give you my word, I truth shall defend for you dragon So in two they returned, and with true story learned, now no more the world feared the dragon
