Summer 2011 writing comp winners – Under 12s

For our summer writing competition, we asked you to write a poem and include the word ‘dragon.’ Here is the winner in the last age category—the Under 12s.

A reminder: always check the rules of the competition. If you don’t stick to the rules, we have to disqualify your entry and that makes us sad!

Under 12s winner: F Apel (QLD)

MY DRAGONS

My little dragon is not a fright
Because she never plays in sight;
Talks all night and sleeps by day;
In my mind she likes to play.
My other dragon is big and mean,
Slimy, smelly, scaly green.
Breathes out smoke that makes me choke;
He’s a scary dream.
