Saint George the Slayer


My fair maiden watches in awe

As my spear of justice stands

At the ready plunge into the beast’s head

I have stood ready waiting for the

foul creature to sliver

out of it’s hole

Around us the bones of the dragon’s

Victims lay in the barren wasteland

The people of the castle

spectate, for the vermin has been

plaguing the castle and village

This is a poem for Bernat Martorell’s

painting, Saint George Killing the Dragon
