The other day I produced the following and launched it at Authors' Den... a
site where one can lodge poems, stories etc and advertise books. There's a
place for comment, and I was curious to see how many readers would get my
allusions. None did. Guesses ranged from Rowling, Rowling, Anthony, Rowling,
McCaffrey, Norton, Lieber ... and did I mention Rowling?

GUESS

A dragon made of pain
With hidden power
Old woman young again
Unruly hours

A prince made up of others
Demon in the fire
Unsatisfactory mothers
Dark Lord ire.

A jockey-ghost for mentor
A rider on a hoe
And many ayewards centaurs
Ageless foe.

A school of hidden witches
A musical quartet
So many storied riches
No regrets

Griffin in a study hall
A dog, transforming star
Wonders all on call
Journey far.

Have you read the twisting tales
Deep secrets homeward bound?
Can you name the author
Whose fantasies I've found?
