Winter Dragon – Eastern Dragon – Snow Dragon

Eastern Dragons are huge “serpent like” beasts, that are far more likely to be associated with a particular element, and/or a particular season.  Just like Falkor “the Luckdragon”, they are often seen as the “source of information”, for many a stalwart adventurer.  Upon one such “Fantasy Quest”, did I encounter, this Winter Dragon, Snow Dragon:
Winter Dragon - Eastern Dragon - Snow Dragon
In undulating snow dunes, with whispers of the forest, did this Winter Dragon:  come to me.  In warmth of “winter furs”, and “white in black” of Snow Leopard, did this Winter Dragon:  fly to me.  With colder skies, and bluer hues of “shiver winds”, did this Winter Dragon:  speak to me.  If I was on a Quest, could this Snowy Land – guide my way?  It’s undulating dunes, made of powdery snow – no paths of trodden foot, just one step forward.  It’s whispers of the forest, made of clumping snow – with heavy feet, and light of heart, just one step forward.  It’s Winter Dragon “Spells of Winter”:  two Snowmen on the right, one sleeping Mountain on the left – an army in the snow, two footsteps forward.  If I was on a Quest, could this Snowy Land – go by name?  It’s winter furs, and love of ice – no head’s bowed low, just iron of will, and much resolve.  It’s agile as a hunting cat, and whiskers of the wizened man – it’s head held proud, with strongest back.  This home of Winter Dragon:  Siberia and her “Winter Gates”.  For in Realms of Fantasy, do I find that I think of none other, than Disney’s Frozen 🙂  Especially that scene, where Elsa walks up the mountain, giving into her powers!  And also that scene, where Anna is first tested, by the Blizzards of Snow, when first she tries to find Elsa.  As that’s also where, this Eastern Dragon’s powers lay:  the ability to command the Element of Ice, and the Element of Snow.  For when this Dragon’s Mood, is thought of Conquest, will your Palace/Castle be besieged, in Realms of Ice.  For when this Dragon’s Mood, is thought of Guardian, will your Adventurer be besieged, by Tests of Strength.  For when this Dragon’s Mood, is thought of Winter, will your Landscapes be besieged, by Empires of the White 🙂  For this Winter Dragon, Snow Dragon, knows just where these Gates of Winter Fantasy, may be found:  from the smallest “spec of snow”, to the largest “sheet of ice”, all are bound to him!  From the smoothest “lake of skate”, to the harshest “climb of glacier”, all may bow to him!  For he’s a Winter Dragon, a Guardian of his Winter Realm, whose versed in knowledge of the wise, and answer to your question:  will it snow this day?

Dragon Fight – Dragon Knight

Some may say that a King’s Army – has little to fear.  Others may say, that a King’s Army – is fear itself.  Yet others may say, that a King’s Army – cannot be conquered!  And so perhaps, that may be true.  But within this Fantasy Land, it is not!  For within this Fantasy Land, there lives a Dragon – whose Armour, is as hard as Rock:

It was upon a Day of Destiny, that a King’s Army – met this Dragon.  At the Forte of a Castle, in the Greens of the Wood.  At the Falls of a River, in the Rocks of the Flow.  A Dragon came, to test the might – of this Army and his Knight.  With Spear and Throw.  With Crossbow and Shoot.  These are the weapons; that these Knight’s did choose.  With Sword and Thrust.  With Snare and Hold.  These are the weapons; that these Knight’s did wield.  In Battle Steel, with Capes in Red.  In Command of King, with Iron of Will.  This Army came!  In Thick of Hide, with Powerful Wings.  In Teeth of Talon, with Grinning Bite.  This Dragon came!  What of the Knights?  They held their Stance.  They aimed their Lance.  They fought this Dragon, the best they could!  A circle of Knights, from all-around.  A Mythical Beast, for Bow and Cross.  They fired their volleys!  What of the Dragon?  He held his ground.  No arrow pierced.  He beat his wings.  No sword could bite.  He lashed his tail.  No stance could hold.  Frederick fell!  He bit through snare.  He reared so high.  With powerful flick.  Did Robin fly!  What of this – Dragon’s Fight?  All day for Knight.  Our Knights did fall.  All lunch for him.  Our Army no more!  No chance for King.  No Castle could Keep!  A Mountain of Rock – this Dragon of Rent!
