A Dragon’s Tale

I spied a dragon flitting by
and when he rested ‘pon the fence
I crept towards him
pace by pace

At first from far I saw him there
some distance from me perching


Slowly I sneaked up to him
creeping onwards as he posed
back turned
he looked away


Very gently
softly tiptoed
a glimpse of his eyes
the wished-for prize


And gazing on his beauty
I wondered at my luck
I feared I’d scare him
come unstuck


We looked upon each other
found that neither were a threat
no fire came out from his mouth
I did not carry a net


So dragon and I
we held our gaze
his eyes ablaze
I thanked him for his time
he slipped away
across the fields
and meet again we may
