Dragon in the Sky


Dragon in the Sky The tip of a spike,
the point of a claw, the flash of a flame:
that’s all I saw. Smoke from a fire:
that’s all I smelt. a tingle of fear:
that’s all I felt. The whirring of wings,
like a gigantic bird stirring the wind:
that’s all I heard. Ran off and hid:
that’s all I did, until the sky cleared
and the signs disappeared and the dragon was far and high. Wish I had waved
goodbye.
