Here’s a random poem I wrote. I like it and hope you will too, though I don’t usually post random poetry like this. Maybe this can be something new called Random Poetry Wednesday.
The Dragon’s Keep
By Me, Jack
Inspired by “The Lord of the Rings” by J. R.R. Tolkien
The ancient strong gate protects the fate
Of the people of River Town
And the dragon that reaped is still asleep
‘Til the fire comes barrelling down
The dwarves are mad
Because the dragon is bad
He took the Arkenstone
And he will pillage your village
Until there’s nothing left
But stone and piles of bone
But in The Dragon’s Keep
Is surely where you’ll find
Mountains of gold and jewels
And plenty spells to bind
You’ll have to risk your life
To get in The Dragon’s Keep
But if you can manage to do it
You’ll be standing in gold, knee deep.
I just wanted to write something old, and fantasy-like, like Lord of the Rings or something like that. The magic and adventure is so cool! Dwarves, treasure hoards, dragons, wizards, witches, evil powerful entities. Epic fantasy is certainly one of my favourite genres of anything. As far as writing this, I just picked out what the lines would be about and went from there.
