The Dragon Who Loved My Singing

XLIII
Once upon a time there was a small, but talented singing bard,
His fellow travelers and adventurers held him in the highest regard.
On one particular day the bard, we’ll call him Portales, got lost,
He had some bad luck taking a wrong turn, his own tracks he crossed.

He could not tell as it was so cold the ground was frozen hard,
Thinking he’d finally found shelter, Portales let down his guard.
All alone in a dark cave he sang, his voice would not exhaust,
Singing and dancing for warmth, melted his away his inner frost.


XLIV

Then Portales heard a groaning stretch, much to his surprise,
Turning around he noticed two darkness piercing red eyes,
He didn’t know what to do, would the creature be hostile,
Would it breath flames, cough lightning or spit acidic bile.

“You little gnome, please keep singing, I will not be your demise.”
So the dragon liked Portales singing, that’s what he would surmise.
After each song he sang the dragon would give a toothy smile,
“I must say Portales I do love your elegant voice and dashing style.”
