A Sleeping Dragon

A sleeping dragon lay
on the banks of Llandudno Bay.
A sleeping guardian
who opens an eye
with the first rays of dawn
when his teeth can be seen
before resting back again.

He keeps a watchful eye
on the town and bay below.
A guardian of peace
and harmony in North Wales,
a sleeping dragon
better know as the large orme.

    Did not the vikings consider the great orme a sea serpent.
    Dragons are more inspiring, and difficult to slay. Commendable poem, sir. (Report) Reply

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
