Do You Remember? by Feanor-the-Dragon Do You Remember? by Feanor-the-Dragon

Started musing to myself a little bit.
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.
*sigh*
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! :D

Wow, I never really thought about it that way. You just opened my narrow-thinking mind to a whole new possibility. :) Now, I've got another question that I had been thinking about for a while. What's your theory about a dragon's fire? How did they manage to create fire inside their mouths and then narrow it come out as a torrent or jet of flames?

I've actually have got one theory but I want to hear more - open up my narrow-thinking mind. :D

Well, there are a number of theories. One (the chemical theory) is that the dragon would have two glands which would produce two different chemicals which would have a volitile reaction when combined... like ther Bombardier beetle. Another theory, which I personally like more, is that the dragon would produce methane gas either in its stomach or in a gland, and would basically exhale it. That system would require an igniter, which could be either (a) a gizzad-like pouch into which the dragon would swallow bits of flint and possibly steel, or (b) a smaller version of chemical theory, which would only be enough to ignite the methane.
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 :XD: ...even though I suppose he's right.
Wow... this comment got long.

I'm inclined to agree with the methane theory. I always thought of it as the (a) theory. :)
Long comments are awesome comments. :D

Great poem. :D

Yes, I completely agree. :nod: Once I told my family that I believed in dragons, because I read an entire book about it. ^^;

Thank you!
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! :D
