Once Upon A Time… #dragons #fantasy

Keith at Carry On Tuesday each week gives a prompt that the writer has to finish

Today’s prompt is:

When  a fiery dragon smote the earth

children rarely played outside

flames often caught the ladies skirts

“patience we must abide”

**

Then there came a stormy pair

who sought to change the score

they claimed to be unaware

that fear  a requisite for rich and poor

***

He brandished magic sword of steel

rode his stout hearted faithful steed

a sure eye her long bow deftly yield

many a  beast’s heart  was pierced with poisoned arrow’s speed

***

Their one weakness was their love

all the town could see

they called for protection from above

“Lord guide us ” is our plea

***

They returned late one moonless night

she had pierced the dragon heart

it had been a long and  fearsome fight

love’s courage had been their dart

***

battle never comes without a cost

they knew this from the start

and sadly this couple was earth’s loss

but they would never be apart

***

children now laugh and play

ladies skirts never alight

they sing of heroism from that day

when love’s fire won the fight
