With eager dragon eyes,
A gleam of opal in a darkened cave,
She watched the night.
She kept her treasure safe:
Hearts’s love, soul’s desire,
Fire-forged dreams softly shining,
Notes: The prompt was to write a poem that begins with a line from a another poem (not necessarily the first one), but then goes elsewhere with it. I’ve used a line from ‘In the Wilderness’ by Robert Graves (and was so distracted by re-reading some of my favourite Graves poems that my own poem is very short!)
