Magic Dragons

I was just a little boy
And dragons abounded, this I was sure
So out I went, on a sun filled day
To slay the fiercest of all dragons

I packed a lunch
I knew this was an all day affair
Dragon slaying was a serious business
And off I marched, to the local bogs

I dreamed of all the fame I would have
The mightiest of all dragon slayers
Why all the village and even church
Would honor my noble deeds

Riches would surely follow
As I sold his hide and fiery tongue
Surely three arrows I would need
To conquer such a mighty foe

Well the bog was wet and the going somewhat slow
Alas the dragon, like magic appeared
Somewhat smaller than I dreamed
He smiled, and said good day young man!!!


Hardly a scary dragon at all
He inquired as to what I had in my sack
I replied, me lunch and three arrows to defeat you
The dragon smiled, and offered to heat up my lunch


How could one refuse such kindness?
Truth be told I was kinda hungry too!
So there we sat on an old fallen log
As I shared my meal with a dragon

Tomorrow I shall return
Just a little boy, poorer still
I will bring another lunch
To share with my new friend in the bog

    I really enjoyed this one, I hope you would consider expanding it, I feel there is much more you can do with this one. It feels like the start to a truly magnificent meal.

    :) How dreamy.....and adorably cute, yet profound.....Great write, Arthur. Thanks for the suggestion on the Title of the poem. I changed it! Gave you credit in the last line for that.
