Description


"Simorah! Dragon queen of the sky!
Sleek, lustrous, lissome, serpentine.
Obsidian body, aquamarine eye,
Vigilant sentinel, in a maze byzantine.

The treasures you guard! The gold you hide,
The precious gems that you nestle over,
The liquid fires that gleam at your side.
In the palace of time you stand protector!"
