Draidyn and the Dragon part 3!!!4:07 PM
Our hero, once reaching the cavern’s mouth, dismounted and entered with care
When his eyes adjusted to the gloom, he gasped at what he saw there!
All ‘round the dragon’s cave were piles of glittering treasure
Gold, silver, precious jewels and riches beyond measure
But all of these stolen, beautiful gems, in Draidyn’s mind, did not compare
To the maiden he saw in the midst of it all, so lonely, so pale, so fair!
“Ahem,” he coughed, alerting the girl.”I suppose this may sound cliché,
But I’ve slain Zatura, that hideous beast, and I’d like bear thee away!”
“Lord bless thee!” she wept, and off they went; the treasures could wait until later
“Please, Draidyn, mayn’t we go to the king, for I am his long lost daughter?”
The king had never known such joy as he felt, that day whence they returned
But his daughter’s heart he did not hoard, for to Draidyn, it had turned
In Draidyn’s honor, a feast was prepared, for he dared to do what was right
And down on a knee, Draidyn knelt ‘fore the king, who dubbed him a “Valiant Knight”
But bittersweet was his victory, for his dear old man was dead
Yet through his sorrow, was joy abounding, for he and the Princess soon wed
And through the realm, the tidings were told, of Victory, Justice and Love
Then all the inhabitants marveled at this, praising their king above
The Lord blessed Draidyn’s wife with children aplenty, filling their home with laughter
And under this Provision and Protection, they lived happily…ever…after
And I finally sent it in!! Two days before deadline! Phew!
