A wish goes up into the night,
For no more dragons left to fight
The pulsing flap of dragon wings,
Up in her room, the princess sings.
Captive there another day,
She knows her knight is on his way.
Ever winding up the spire,
Weary legs refuse to tire.
Gnashing teeth against steel blade,
A battle for true love forbade.
A princess still to defend,
One final thrust to mark the end.
To break the spell, a gentle kiss,
A vow of love from the rescuing prince.
Fast across the endless plains,
Finally free of binding chains,
Together on a great white steed,
Two hearts at long last freed.
Stars sprinkle the heavens in the night
With no more dragons left to fight.
