The Boy and the Dragon ~CordieB.

So full of mannishness, quite an impressive brave boy! 

He worshiped mom and dad; second only to his toys… 

that sparked imagination; making him noble like his dad.

His sword he proudly made himself; his armor, titan clad.

He knew he had a job to do; he had to do this on his own; 

for mom and dad were fast asleep; into the woods, he’d crept alone… 

to stop a fire breathing dragon from evading his family’s peaceful home. 

He practiced sorcery faithfully for weeks before this fateful eve! 

Although he feared the dragon’s fire; he knew he could not leave. 

He had to ensure this beast would not blow the house with fire… 

And so with magic titan sword in hand, he tipped into the mire. 

Although his skills were excellent on his Xbox 360, 

He knew an actual defeat might prove a bit more tricky!

As he moved deeper into the woods, near the beaver dam, 

he saw the dragon lying down, but upon closer exam . . . 

he realized the dragon was almost fast asleep… 

Suddenly the dragon opened one eye and surprisingly began to weep! 

"Oh boy, why must you slay me?  I mean no harm to you!" 

"I have no friends in this world, and wandered here to you." 

The boy swiftly stopped the sword in mid air, it would have pierced dragon’s lung!

Boy and Dragon began talking and playing; having lots of fun!

And that’s how a lifetime friendship of boy and dragon first begun.
