Day 27: Monster Poem


Shiny scales as hard as stone
A tail like a leathered whip
Wings to scale the mountains high
Eyes of fire, quick as wit

A dragon's claws to pierce the heart
through armor, golden or steel
Flames to melt bone and flesh
A mind that knows to kill

What sulfur scent will descend
a terror spreading wide
Or a graceful dance of mind and wing
When it finds another of its kind

-A. Ault-
