In old times they told a story
of Siegfried of Austria, a hero of many battles
with evils, who died fighting the last dragon.

See what you can do with that.

He was the first called fire man
To slay the dragon in his lair
Tall and wide, bold of eye
He could stop you with his stare

They say he was without heart
Though fiercely he did fight
No conscience he, nor fear
He fought tho t’were wrong or right

His body scarred from swords
Drawn by knights of bold
His pockets jangled as he walked
Filled with bounty’s gold

One day he found a maiden
Singing softly in a field
She smiled at him to soften
The sword that she would wield

Surprised by her bold challenge
A woman warrior was she
But he had no quarrel with her
And turned to let her be

Swift was her arcing saber
Shattering breast and bone
He lay bleeding in the field
Left there all alone

She lived but never told the tale
Leaving his fateful story to the sages
And so it was recounted then
Through time and the ages:

In old times they told a story
of Siegfried of Austria,
a hero of many battles with evils,
who died fighting the last dragon

Poet deVine,

Post this on the main site.
Let us acknowledge
times past.
Their dreams.
Their myths.
Their legends.
