|'Earth Dragon' by Sue Wookey|
...but, the words! They took forever. This was a surprise as I have quite a deep feeling about land dragons and earth energy, but somehow getting that feeling into four lines proved nearly impossible. I suppose I should have expected it as I don't believe dragon eggs hatch quickly, no matter how much you stare at them. Eventually a crack appeared and I came up with the following:
Have you felt the call of dawn's first fire,
unfurling still through Earth's deep seams,
the Dragon's song of star and stone
and Merlin's lost and tangled dreams.
Phew. Got there in the end. In case you are wondering, after some musing and a short Facebook debate, we are all agreed this is a Mrs Dragon. Expect more eggs.
