Two children set out in the snow and follow the tracks of what they believe to be a dragon. They meet a man who knows all about the beasts of the world, and he begins to tell them the story of a young boy and a poetry-loving dragon. The dragon hates fighting and longs to live peacefully in his cave. However, the boy warns him that the villagers might not be so willing to let a dragon live nearby.
