(18 June 1945 / Bradfield, England)

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

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
