Giant Serpant Bear Poem by Andrew Nawroski

Giant Serpant Bear

Beautiful angel sat knitting hills and trees
With silken thread and unicorn mane
Needles of finest golden steel
When finished looked down to see
Tree's of diamonds with sapphire leaves
Monster did prowl
With legs and arms like serpent bear
Did rip down all trees without a care
The angel with tear in eye
Flew down
And asked the monster
‘Oh monster serpent bear why? Oh why? ’
Big monster with slits for eyes
And grin of rotten teeth replies
‘Your trees are to beautiful for my eyes
to see, so no one can enjoy such reverie
Angel seeing the monsters saddened paws
And granite weeping eyes
'Poor monster serpent bear,
I will make some trees for you alone
To enjoy everywhere'
Monster shuffled away and sat
Solemn and glum
With head drooped began to cry
Angel sat high above
Began to knit with gossamer thread
And serpent tails
Soon down below
New trees began to grow
Like towering jungles their leaves did hold
Such animals no one dare see
The monster looked up
A smile began to spread
Across his stone chiselled head
He bound to the nearest tree
And climb high did he
Amongst such beasts above the ground
Wild did roam
Then gathered enough leaves and branch
With vine like rope he twist
All to shape a splendid home
As time past by
Monster and angel soon forgot
All that fell
And monsters ways of old where he begot.
