As the snow fell heavy on the fresh spring blooms 🌷 the raggedy dragon awoke from his 2000 year slumber. The world, having gone almost as long without seeing a real dragon, was totally unprepared for what was coming.
As the snow deepened the children, elated with a snow day, played merrily in the drifts. Their parents fired up snow blowers and grabbed shovels. Wood stoves and disused fireplaces were cranking out heat and crackling away.
Slowly he stretched his legs and unfurled his tail. Then he lapped up a few errant snails 🐌 for a tiny snack. Gooey and not to satisfying but would do as a sort of chewing gum till juicy peasants could be found for a real feast!!
