ODOP: Old Danilo (18)

Subtitled: 😦

“It’s about time!” But with the steward on
His back Ivan could not wrestle the dragon,
Who was charging them, covering versts
Every second, so that they were inches
From death before they could think. But the dogs! –
In a slanted line they darted ahead,
Two to tear at each head, and all twelve died
To save their master, succumbing to burns
And gashes, but not before their victory.
Ivan didn’t conceal his sobs.
