Black Dragon

Dark Dragonheart
breathes out
great jet streams
of thunderous cloud
he flings them about
to rumble and grumble
across the sky

Shadow-king reigns
his great wings
block out the sun's rays
shorten our days
and freeze the North

So cold I dream
a cosied pot of hot
red dragon tea,
to warm icicle fingers
and sip

Storms rage
beyond the boundaries
of Hades
banish starlight
bring death to the vulnerable
the very old and young
those in pain or weak

Oh Black Dragon
though your imperial
five toed grip
lingers late this year
bringing death and decay
life's sworn to rise
again, in SpringĀ
