Once upon a time

The dragon spoke to the princess in
the gentlest voice he could find.
Softly….Oh so softly he whispered
right into her mind.

The princess listened gladly
she was feeling quite at home
everything was so familiar
(she thought)
looking about her, as he
talked of flying soon
back to the purple moon which
matched his purple wings.
And, then he spoke about his world
and other rare magical

She curled her legs beneath her
but shivered by his side as
the mist’s of time settled
all about
And when he saw that tiny
tremour he lifted up
his wing to fold her within
diminish the trembling
increase the warmth and
keep the coldness

She sighed as he quietly
continued and let
his silent words take her
to the places of her dreams.
To lands where giants and ogres
roam and where…
(it seems without doubt)..
He flies the same skies as
witches with brooms and
with a certain certainty
she knew that humans

Time passed by….

The sun was falling from
the sky
and soon he had to leave
But the princess was not
Content….he’d come again.
For ‘she’ is beauty
and ‘he’ …the beast
but they were
mates in soul
…The same.

She knew she need only
whisper his name and
there the dragon would be.

It had been like that
throughout history

Because you see

Dragons live forever and
she too is princess of the fae
and in this story they
share their lives
forever and a

  1. Loved this poem! Wonderful rhythm and dreamlike. Such a great story wrapped up under the dragons wing, I wish he was whispering in my ear 🙂

  2. It brought back memories! That was how the little fairy tales mesmerized us before as kids. It still does with your verse, Wonderful write,Bren!


  3. Yikes…that is toooooo beautiful…lol. I am a hopeless romantic and this made me smile. This weekend has caught me by surprise with romance…just watched the movie Love Actually again for the fifth time last night when it came on…it filled me up and made me smile like this did. Great writing.

  4. This is beautiful!!! I love dragons and fairy tales and this is a poem I will re read 🙂 I love it! I do hope you check out my blog… I write about dragons and love and stuff lol!!

  5. I hope he comes back even as the poem barely hinted at he might not even as she declares forever and a day. How enchanting.

  6. The picture is great. And once more brought it to life with your words, kind of all dragonheart in a way too.

  7. smiles…fun…i love dragons…pretty sure i told you that before…this is a magical tale…and see the tag childrens tale..was thinking as much as i read it…smiles.

  8. Aww, this is delightful. I especially like the way this sounds:

    She sighed as he quietly
    continued and let
    his silent words take her
    to the places of her dreams.

    P.S. I couldn’t get here from the link on Real Toads.

  9. Bren, this is beautiful. What a fanciful poem and clever story. I could see this as an illustrated children’s book. Think about it. Oh that we all had a dragon we could summon at will!
