The Dragon in the Woods

Dragon in the Woods


Mommy Come, Mommy See!

I found a dragon in the woods!

Was walking in the shadows where you told me not to go,

and found a pile of stones shaped kinda like a nose!

I climbed on top a tree stump for to better see

And saw it's flaming eyes gazing back at me!

Its grassy mane was tossed upon a passing breeze

and when it looked I wondered what part of me it sees.

Weathered rock made up its skin and ancient scales,

yet never would I say that this old thing was frail!

'Hullo!' said I, curtsying and trying to be polite.

It moved not a muscle, but fixed me in its sight.

I said I'd best be leaving because you'd miss me soon,

Despite the sun still in the sky and the birds singing their tune.

I left it there in shadows, hidden by flower and fern,

But I'm sure it's just waiting for me to return!

So Mommy Come! Mommy See!

The dragon in the woods!

Wow. Just . . . WOW! I WANT to say more, but fear I would fail miserably in ANY attempt to express my TRUE delight in this. THANK YOU!

This is a wonderful poem with an ancient, child-like propensity to prose. It is both whimsical, yet totally serious (much like a child's desire to share something with a parent).

Delicious sense of fun. MAWR!
