Dragon's Tears - Poem by Slava Olchevski

Where mushushu dragon nests on the mountaintops
Looking down the valleys on numerous human folks
Puffing clouds through rain and snow
From his nostrils to the land below

For thousands years he guarded the treasure
Saved from the Great Flood
The treasure that Gods had brought in there
From the land of Sumer and Akkad

Great Kings of the past tried their best
To get the treasure they came on a quest
They killed the dragon and burned his body
But the treasure was found by nobody...

I happened to be in those mountains
Deadly tired, I found a fountain...
Sometime later I was told by the seers
In the eye of the dragon filled with magical tears

I washed my body and cleaned my face
And was resurrected by the Gods' grace
The treasure well hidden from humanity
Was the fabled fountain of immortality.
