Near Dragon's Shoe

Barely two and I saw you
Down below near Dragon's shoe
His eyes were dark and yours too
Reaching between the bars to see
I stretched my arm between the steel

Elevation of determination was true
Almost through the bars to you...
But then...You looked.

So did the sun the blinding one
and I swayed and the air went thin
and I prayed reeling between the bars
there and barely aware that I...
was falling.

Through the stars between the dark
and into the center of your eyes I fell
Yellow flames burned red the smell
and a tender voice whispered tales...

When I awoke to my Mother's tone
My back was upon a hard cold stone
And there you were...
Still.Near Dragon's shoe.
