Across the reeds of river wide
Goes the man with hasty stride.
-
To seek a treasure from the wyvern's cave,
He had a sword and shield and stave.
-
To pierce the flesh he needed steel
With souls ablaze and healing chill.
-
And so he wandered, never falling
Though to the Wyrm it seemed forestalling.
-
And in the deep of cave it lay
With sword in claw, so watched the fey.
-
Eyes alight with golden fire
To watch the man, on his journey tire.
-
But these opened up in shock
When the man picked the final lock.
-
And into the room, his heartbeats steady
He reached the blade, with vigil ready.
-
And so the warrior with glove hand snatched,
The edge of double power matched
-
Only by the dragon's might
And so he walked to mortal fight.
-
Said he to the dragon "Now do you dare?"
"To bring thine mythic arms to bear?"
-
And the wyvern replied, with furious smash
And breath of smoke and fire and ash,
-
"And do you hear the evil bade?"
"Inside one half of the double blade?"
-
The man then fell upon his knees,
To hear such truth of evil things.
-
For long he sought this steel so prized,
And yet would it bring his demise?
-
And so he cast the sword aside
And with one hasty gallant stride
-
He rushed with normal weapon bared,
To kill the thing that darkness shared.
-
And with one cut and flash of white
Did the victor end the fight.
-
But who it was, I cannot say,
It does not matter anyway.
-
Both are dead and forever gone
Save only in this haunting song.
~~~ Woo. . . Another spur of the moment thing there. Anyway, hope you
enjoyed it. ~~~
