Once Upon a Dream

A cave I feared to enter
Held the treasure I longed to seek
Among the midnight's weather
The moon was white and weak

I took a single step
Inside the dark, cold cave
I was only getting prepared
For a long and frightful maze

A raven squeaked, squawked, and talked
Upon the midnight moon
He moved to block
The cave, a lot
In which I nearly swooned

The raven had moved
I pondered in the cave
In which he approved
My eyes were clearly glued
I wandered to such a blaze

I could almost see the treasure
Behind the dragon's rock
he was so big; You could not measure
all he did was block

This was the only use
For the sword that I was given
Nor did I get to choose
Why he was unforgiving

I laughed
I blanked
All in awe
He was sleeping on some straw
I woke up that night
My eyes in light
All upon the midnight's moon.
