I have never ridden a lethal dragon as it soars across the jewelled black velvet sky, but I have sat joyfully in a plane as I wait for it to land in Canada.
I have never gazed at a proud lion as it stalks its prey and then pounces upon it, but I have watched a black and white domestic cat carrying helpless mouse between its teeth.
I have never set foot in Buckingham Palace, home of the queen, but I have entered Alnwick Castle, a brilliant, historic building.
I have never travelled back in time to meet inspirational historical figures, but I have read about the heroic things they’ve done.
I have never felt scorching hot fire burning my skin as it consumes more wood, but I have witnessed a beautiful firework display.
I have never fought off a wild hydra with a solid silver sword, but I have read books about it.
I have never finished this poem before, but I have finished it now.
