Their teeth snap As they feast
On their fresh-caught prey.
They've had a most successful hunt
Although it took all day.
Their leader sounds the triumph call
The others all join in
If you ever face these beasts,
Never shall you win.
They finish picking off the scraps
Of every single bone
Their prey has been devoured
Now it's time to go home.
Each stands as stiff as ancient marble
As they get into formation.
They all wait for their leader's call
To sense that sweet sensation.
The call goes out
And all react
Launching into the skies
Each of their bellies packed.
Their wings pull taut
As they catch the warm updrafts.
Their skin is flexing iron,
Their wings like metal shafts.
Rising into higher spaces.
They look quite magnificent
With Diamonds of cloud dew crusting their faces.
They glide as if floating across the sea
Each one still where it should be.
They all tilt down
And begin to descend
Their long flight home is at an end.
Each returns to his family
Everything is known
About the hunt and long flight back
To hearth and Dragon Home.
