Earlier this week, you met the Rock Giant, Enderfon, a heroic character in Where Dragons Follow, my fantasy novel #2. While he was imprisoned in his stone shell he composed a number of poems. They are not quite doggerel but he composed them in all seriousness. A good way to pass the time when you don’t have other options.
THE SPELL BREAKS
Away from my home I wandered afar
To lands unknown, driven by quest.
I walked alone armed with my mace
And promising to do my best.
Like boll ink ooze my eyes lost light.
What did I lose in that bottomless night
Of echoes and cries sapping my might?
A spell was cast and I was trapped
In a stone shell holding me tight.
Falling, falling. Was I asleep?
I heard a dragon call my name.
Within my heart, it lay so deep.
My aching dreams, were they to blame?
Awake on the plain, no more to weep
I rose to find the hero’s way.
