Remember when you were little, and everything was magic? Before you went to school, and those people called 'scientists' told you why the world is how it is, or that the world is round and has limits and bounderies? Back when anything was possible; when there was a castle on every cloud? And there was always some princess needing saved from some evil, fire-breathing beast that would fall to a single fell swing of your mighty sword? When every trip into the backyard was the stuff of legend, and a walk through the garden yielded great and mythic adventurings?
...I do. I remember it well. And it saddens me a little that I wil never again be able to capture the wonder and awe and innocence of the small child.
Anyway, please tell me what you think. This is a little different from the style of poetry that I normally write, so I'm curious to know how others see it.
Thanks for reading!

I've actually have got one theory but I want to hear more - open up my narrow-thinking mind.
Personally, I support the methane/chemical igniter theory.
...My brother (who was reading over my shoulder) just wrapped it up pretty nice for me... He said, "So they just burp and light it?"
...He's nursing a soundly boxed shoulder now ...even though I suppose he's right.
Wow... this comment got long.
Yes, I completely agree. Once I told my family that I believed in dragons, because I read an entire book about it.
I actually still do believe in dragons... There's just too many records for them to be made up. Personally, I think that many of them were dinosaurs (some of which (may I cite Leviathan) must surely have been able to breath fire) which did not go extinct, and they just got called dragons by the people who saw them.
Do I think they're magical? ...One can always hope
xD I nearly started rambling.
Anywho, I'm glad you liked it!
