Far to the North
In the realm of eternal Winter
Lies the home of the Snow Dragon
Scales white iridescence, like opals in the snow
Teeth and Talons blue as a glacial flow

They sun themselves amongst the icecapped peaks
disguised as icy spires, glistening in the light
Wings outstretched take to the air
To dissolve within the clouds

If ever you should find yourself in this frigid realm
And if you believe in dragons, you will have nothing to fear
For if you should slip, a bluish blur will set your foot aright
Or if you should become snowblinded and loose your way
Donít scrutinize too closly the winking eye or ice-like claw
That has deposited you where you may easily regain your way.

Just look to the peaks, smile to yourself and give thanks,
And when you hear a roar like a new glacier forming
It is the voice of the Snow Dragon you are hearing,
Echoing through his realm of perpetual Winter.

This is so beautiful! I could actually picture the dragon through your wonderful choice of words!

Oh to be a Snow Dragon..

HUGS

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.

You've succeeded in making the dragon a beautiful creature in my eyes...loved the poem!

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...
