THE DRAGON AND THE GIRL Once upon a time a dragon Instructed a virgin By reading books out loud. Because the dragon’s breath was fire, The books burned as she read them. They paid close attention. The dragon and the girl who came to visit Lived in the heat of blown glass – The cave in which the dragon Lived Was blown glass. The king sent a knight. To put an end to this class. Knight threw his lance and Killed the dragon. Glass ball shattered. - Erik Ehn, from Vireo: The Spiritual Biography of a Witch’s Accuser
