Gather round as I spin you a tale of magic and mystery.
In the heart of Glastonbury, where the whispers of Avalon linger in the air, Merlin, the wise old wizard, beckons you to the edge of the mystical Tor. As the sun dips below the horizon, casting a warm golden glow, Merlin begins to share the ancient tale of the Dragon of Glastonbury.
"Long ago," Merlin begins, his eyes twinkling with arcane wisdom, "a mighty dragon named Pendragon soared across the skies of this sacred land. It wasn't a fearsome creature as you might imagine, but a guardian of balance and harmony."
With a sweep of his hand, Merlin gestures towards the Tor, where the dragon once rested in slumber. "The Dragon of Glastonbury was a wise and benevolent being, connected to the very essence of the earth. Its scales shimmered like the reflective surface of the Chalice Well, and its breath carried the healing essence of the land."
"As the guardian of Glastonbury, the dragon watched over the ley lines, ensuring the energy flowed smoothly through the heart of Avalon. It held the key to the mystical connection between the earthly realm and the ethereal planes."
Merlin's eyes gleam as he recounts the dragon's encounters with seekers of wisdom. "Those who approached with pure hearts and open minds found themselves guided by the dragon's gentle presence. It whispered secrets of the ancient oak trees and shared the language of the stones that adorned the Tor."
As Merlin speaks, the wind seems to carry the echoes of the dragon's wisdom through the air. "The Dragon of Glastonbury wasn't just a creature of the past; its spirit lingers still. Those who connect with the land, the magic, and the ancient knowledge may find themselves embraced by the dragon's energy."
"In the moonlit nights, especially during the Beltane fires, some say they can still hear the distant echo of the dragon's majestic roar, a reminder that the magic of Glastonbury is timeless and enduring."
Merlin concludes the tale with a twinkle in his eye, “Should you ever find yourself wandering the sacred grounds of Glastonbury, know that the Dragon of Glastonbury watches over you, ready to share its ancient wisdom and healing energy with those who seek it."
And with that, the magical tale of the Dragon of Glastonbury leaves you with a sense of wonder and the feeling that perhaps, just perhaps, the dragon's spirit still dances in the mystic winds of Avalon.
