The Storyteller: The Sleep
The Storyteller: |
A joyous moment so short lived,
The dragon has learned the trick'ry
Of story spun by the fae queen
To give life to her newborn son.
With heavy heart she leaves her child
In the lightening fen. Retrieved,
The dragon won't harm the beauty
But no longer she'll see the sun.
Sleep is the fate she has received.
The dragon can gaze upon her
Fair face and never be deceived.
No lies heard, always to be seen.
A son will grow. Dragon outlived.
The future foretold in a dream.
No dreamless sleep for this fae queen.
Her mind has no mortal confines.
She will watch her son as he grows
And knows she'll be among her own.
Dragons in endless greedy quest
Become quite careless and obscene.
While pillaging, her faithful fae
Swiftly bring her back to her home.
Still she sleeps until lives have seen
The culmination of their fate
And the return of love pristine
Opens her eyes and freely flows.
Time is nigh for fates to convene
And all the secrets to disclose.
Three lives bound by love………
