"He had several favourite retreats"

"He had several favourite retreats" - Remembering Babylon by David Malouf

Enter darkness. Leave the light.
Here be nightmare. Here be fright.
Here be dragon, flame and flight.
Here be spit-fire. Here be grief.
So curse the bones of unbelief.
Curse the creeping treasure-thief.
Curse much worse the dragon-slayer.
Curse his purse and curse his payer.
Curse these words. Preserve their sayer.
Earth and water, fire and air.
Prepare to meet a creature rare.
Enter, now, if you dare.
Enter, now... the dragon's lair!

I really like the shades in this one Martina.

I am finding the quotes from a book I have just read terribly disconcerting :-)

I think I had better focus on the pics.

Martina said...

joanet, that's sweet - didn't know that.

Aileni, you do???

Sean, and not tagged ... >.->

Joan Elizabeth, yes, it's totally different if you read the book - like I do ;-)

You have a wonderful menagerie of chimera in this blog

AB, I really have to hold back not to post _only_ gargoyles and chimera ;-) (besides some nice street art)
