The Loss of Dragons

The Loss of Dragons

Why did you disappear
You were the stuff of legends
Making kings and heroes
The small towns were afraid of you
They hid their children
Ran to the forests to hide
Still, they sang songs about you
Told stories that are still told today
Then you were just gone
New stories were no longer written
Songs never again spoke of you
New demons frightened the people
New legends made kings and heroes
Even now, without the songs and stories
The people need you
You stand in bronze and granite
Guarding our churches and buildings
We look at you in amazement
Impressed by your wings and fangs
Still, there are no new legends or songs
No more kings and heroes
And that is sad
