When the Dragons Flew

I wished that I lived when the dragons flew
And the princes there, and the princesses too
All walked, fell in love, lived in castles tall
With moats, and a drawbridge, and a dining hall…
Oh to live when the dragons flew!

Back then, there were knights who did mighty deeds
Who rode unicorns, flew on pegasus steeds.
And magic was real – there were miracles too! –
And the good fought hard to see bad overthrew…
Oh to live when the dragons flew!

And the princess was dressed all in shimmering white
Her fame was well-known, and her beauty shone bright.
A dragon protects her – they fly through the sky
To solve hard quests, then return by and by…
Oh to live when the dragons flew!

My dragon was red, and her mate was bright green.
And their babes came from eggs with a white milky sheen.
And my dragons and knights kept my country secure –
Not just in my daydreams, but for real, and for sure…
Oh to live when the dragons flew!
