Dragon (the early years: before 1972)

In flames of hell they learned to crawl;

their tongues are forked, their hearts are small,

long and scaly be their case,

and eyes of blackness mark their face.


They came forth from their resting place

in mountain’s flames and thunders face

and cursed be the land that spawned

the dragon’s maul across the lawn.


About johnsmithiiimxiii

John Smith, IIMXIII is the avatar of an award winning poet, artist, etc. who still lives in the Palouse country of the Pacific NW. He has not received much notice with his prose . . . but as his avatar, I hope that he keeps plugging along.
