(I am reposting this only because it was on Open Poetry #1 and I finally finished the sequel by request)

The Dragon and the Maiden

Pretty maiden, skin so fair
With lengthy locks of thick red hair
Met a dragon late one night
With not another soul in sight
He looked the maiden up and down
She looked at him and stood her ground
She smiled with not a bit of fear
He spoke these words she was to hear
“Maiden fair, sight to behold
Come with me if you’re so bold
Let my wings wrap and enfold you
In them tight, I’ll safely hold you
Let my breath warm and excite you
I promise dear, I will not bite you.
Let my claws run through your hair
I beg of you my maiden fair”
She looked the dragon in the eye
And to his words she did reply
“Sheath your claws! Unfold your wings!
Bind me not with all these things!
Whisper not with breath of fire
but give to me my hearts desire”
