Night greets the day
with a mourning storm,
a howling
lament of wind.
A massive thing
without shape or form,
breaking
what it does not bend.

In the eye's calm,
a battle will rage,
based upon
a woman's love.
Let's meet
the players
upon this stage,
those whom
we know nothing of.

The Darkling beast
is the first we'll meet,
undoubtedly the villain.
Raised upon hate,
suckled on deceit,
born and bred for killing.

It's deadpan eyes
are fish-belly white,
filled by hollowness
of soul.
It's three foot teeth
are a ghastly sight,
each of them blacker
than coal.

The air around it
shimmered as if
reluctant to touch
the thing.
It's ponderous tongue
was forced and stiff,
thick
and constantly drooling.

It's massive maw
is blacker than hate,
lit
with an inner red glow.
Spittle trails
at an dreadful rate,
pooling around it
below.

The tentacular arms
are fearsome,
roiling as they
whip about.
The sound of it's heart
is like a drum,
it's thudding echoes,
a shout.

It's oozing skin
the color of blood,
glistened
in the morning sun.
The hue of it's torso
more like mud,
from a graveyard
left undone.

It's ponderous feet
gouge
the soft earth,
while waiting
for it's first war.
The length of it's tail,
matched by it's girth,
lashed at the top
of the tor.

Slowly settling
itself to the ground,
it became
perfectly still.
It's murderous heart
began to pound,
enter the next
on the bill.

Dragon is such
a beautiful sight,
winging his way
into view.
Ebony scales
sparkle in the light,
bringing wonder
all anew.

His wild, crimson eyes,
cut to the Beast,
pondering
this fearsome foe.
With haughty disdain,
to say the least,
Dragon turned,
as if to go.

The horizon framed
his noble form,
a piece of night
brought to life.
His silver-tipped claws
flash in the storm,
like moonlight
does off a knife.

His hot,
glowing eyes
spill crimson fire,
as his head
slowly turns 'round.
Smoke curls
from his nostrils,
in his ire,
to billow
upon the ground.

Spreading his wings
out to their full span,
flashes
a green-tinted gold.
Once again,
Dragon, surveys his Land,
His
since he was young
and bold.

His blackened back
matches the Beast's maw,
rainbow hues
slide under it.
He broods on those
defying his Law,
nearly mad enough
to spit.

His regal horns
settle into place,
twitching tail,
curling around.
He'd rather die
than lose in disgrace,
be enslaved again,
or bound.

Dragon stands,
impressively silent,
like dead stone,
and just as still.
His anger
cannot ever relent,
enter the next
on the bill.

Dragon's consort,
hopefully his bride,
he held cradled
in his arm.
Gently
he set her down
at his side,
wings shielding her
from all harm.

The virgin,
a symbol of the Land,
has curls spilling
to her waist.
Haughty pride
marks her right
to command,
as she moves back
without haste.

She looks on Dragon
with sparkling eyes,
filled with the heat
of desire.
With gentle care,
she undoes the ties,
dropping her gown
in the mire.

The alabaster white
of her skin,
glows pale,
in the morning light.
Ruby lips part,
as she dwells on sin,
Dragon brings her
such delight.

Golden tresses
flow out behind her,
her green eyes
seem out of place,
surrounded by
an aura of myrrh,
a mystery
in her face.

The wind teased
about her nakedness,
as she lets
it drink it's fill.
Dragon gives her
a final caress,
enter the next
on the bill.

To this knight,
we must give
his just due,
a fearsome man,
full of pride.
He wears chain-mail armor,
gauntlets too,
a mighty blade
at his side.

In his heart,
he is truly craven,
cowardice,
he can't deny.
Into his soul,
it's deeply graven,
he accepts this
with a sigh.

Though minor
is the part he will play,
excitement,
he will instill.
Though content
to continue,
I say,
he is the last
on the bill.

So ends Part 1

WOWOWOW
I liked this immensely, but I LOVE dragon tales and castle stories and such, so you have hit upon a great great way to make this little western girlie quite happy!

WOW!!!!
What a wonderful start to an epic.
I'm almost speachless as to what to say.
It gripped me and held me until the very last line, and even there after.

Your epic bold
The story thus told
With a knight craven
And a beautiful maiden.
A majestic Dragon true
And a most vile villian too.
One cannot wait
To hear you relate
The tale to come
After this part one
