Behold, the Huricand


Writing Prompt: Write a poem about a magical animal.


Alone in the wood,

Walked Keatoph the brave,

Up to the mouth of a cave,

With a long, tall hood.


He went in to its cavern,

maintaining no animosity,

But searching for his enemy,

Grifkar, the worm.


The moss on the ceiling glowed blue.

The floor of the cave beamed back,

Disappearing, deep into the mountain crack,

A mystery revealed to few.


Not enemies this cave did share,

And instead a sight so grand.

Behold, the legendary Huricand,

Seen by travellers fare.


Its fur was black and shined.
