Was it really there

Was it really there? Deep in its lair the dragon sleeps it’s snore rumbles and shakes sending quivers to all villagers quake in fright it must be thunder they hide indoors too afraid to look but the dragon goes on sleeping the snorts grow louder it’s bones now creek as it slowly stretches old and cold he curls back up in his gloomy lair since forgotten just lying there slowly fading away his fire extinct children creep inside the dank dark cave to hunt for a dragon long since gone did he really exist or is that just legend are they scales glistening or trickles of water playing tricks with your eyes was it really there

Happy now sat by Mum's chair, Not a meal in the dragon's lair, Boys and girls play out at night, Trying to be brave but full of fright. [End of my Childhood poem.] We all really want to be Peter & Wendy! God Bless. D.

Gail: I can tell you as a kid, there really are things that go bump in the night even if grown -ups don't want to admit it. Thanks for sharing those "supportive" thoughts with us. oldbuck
