A fantasy poem written from a true story told to my youngest son by a teacher...Thank you, Mark.

The Frog Pond


Glistening, gleaming waters calm,

Castles green of sparkling glass_

Shadows cast by swaying palms.

Green Knights strong and bold of caste,

Keeping watch both night and day.

Castle guards must never sleep,

Protecting those of weaker sway.

Dangers lurk in waters deep_

Attacking Dragon from the east_

Ravenously stalking with deadly intent_

Slithering slowly round the Keep.

Victim paralyzed, all courage spent_

Trapped within the mouth of doom,

Hope still lives in this young Prince.

Within his breast dreams still bloom_

Croaking out with last breath spent.

Knight of courage and renown,

Certain rescue to unfold_

Pulling tail of serpent down_

Bold young Knight of green and gold.

Saving Kingdom and the Prince_

Peace now reigns in this small bog_

Never seen the Dragon hence,

In this Kingdom of the Frog.
