A sound came from my right
As I was walking down Fifth and Third
Then came into sight
As dark as the night
A burned dragon was what I heard.

The poor guy had the second degree
I felt really sorry for him;
Not my expertise
But from what I could see
His chances of living were slim...

The burns on his scales looked pretty bad
So I called a medic that never arrived
The expression he had
Was that he was sad
And it would be something if he survived.

Then I did something I couldn't explain
So much that I startled myself--
On him my hands lain
Somehow relieved pain
And restored him to near-full health...

His scales were shiny and healthy again
And gone were the burns I observed--
His wounds did mend
My help I did lend
And that the poor guy did deserve.

But what just happened to him and I
To this day I don't understand
I look to the sky
And I ask why
An answer I did demand;

But got none.

My theory goes, if you truly care
Then there's nothing you can't do--
Like what happened there,
It gave me a scare
And at the time I wish I knew.

But I know now.

Try it sometime, you might be surprised
The miracles right before your eyes.

To everyone: Thanks to Denise (dsnyder), I can finally explain how I write poems so fast--if you care enough, you can do anything!


And to Scorched Dragon: I hope you recognize that you gave me this idea as well!     I like Exile's "Questions on Dragons", too.

Indeed you have a nice poem up there
Thanks for the wisdom
Keep it up, your doing fine

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Little Spyro,
So nice to see you posting here in Open 5  
This might be my favorite of your work so far...I agree with PdV...you have so much wisdom for one so young...
Your pieces are always a pleasure I look forward to reading.....




 A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!
