Dragon's Gold

Dragon's Gold

A Poem by leroyb

A poem about how one dragon aquires gold.


The dragon sleeps soundly on a bed of bright gold.

Scattered before him, dry white bones of the bold.

The dragon is bored dealing with such thieves,

They arrive without fail with the brown autumn leaves.

Righteous knights,  armor shining bright, so very proud:

“We must save the poor peasants!”, they cried out loud.

Dragon screams, “Where were you when I had no gold?”

The dragon prevailed over the knights of old.


Soon white snow hid the bones of those who were bold.

The peasants come by sleigh, in spite of the deep cold:

“Thank you for getting rid of the knights.  We have brought you more gold.”

Fantastic story told here!
Speaking on the virtues/intentions of these "valiant" knights who are there to "save the poor peasants."

And a very nice ending to the poem.
Nice work!
