‘The Spirit of the Storm’ By Robert Melton

A small medieval village is superstitious following a terrible storm. A freelance knight is found among the wreckage and the village believes him to be a bad omen. As much as he tries to win their trust, the villagers shun him. The knight becomes useful in helping rescue village children from a dragon. He also discovers the source of their superstitious suspicion. Story is told in verse, after the fashion of the minstrels of the middle ages.
