Sleeping Kiss

There once was a fair maid with a long main of curly red locks
She was wandering the forest until she got herself lost

Laying upon a hill of the softest green moss
Quickly she fell asleep, not giving it another thought

And on that fine day, a dragon cavalier was out hunting just for sport
He came upon the maiden, it threw him out of sorts

He’d never seen such beauty in all the land far and wide
Walking to where she lay, studying her as she sighed

His mind was in a whirlwind, he couldn’t even think
He was so parched he had to take a drink

Her lips tasted like candy, honey-sweet and so very soft
When her eyes fluttered open, the breath in her lungs caught

For arching over her was a man with a handsome bearded face
Wearing the reddest armor that she had ever seen to date

She knew right at that moment, he was of the dragon’s keep
They were the saviors that protected all the land and he was
grinning at her, she couldn’t help but watch, she didn’t make a
peep

And when he spoke to her, her heart began to race
She couldn’t help herself, she reached up and touched his face

He rescued her that day, returning her to her parents unscathed
A fortnight from then, they were wed, to live happily ever after in
peace

During their life, they would reminisce about that fateful day
The Sleeping Kiss was a fairytale that they told children when it
was time to sleep

And with that, the story had spread across the land
But it had changing so much throughout the years, but the story
was the same
