Summer 2011 writing comp winners – under 7s

For our summer writing competition, we asked you to write a poem and include the word ‘dragon.’ Here is the winner in the Under 7s section.

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 7s winner: D Morgan (WA)


I wish I were a dragon who could fly high in the sky
I wish I were a dragon who could talk to a fly.
I wish I were a dragon who was very nice and kind,
And even help people who are completely blind.
I wish I were a dragon who would go to sleep,
And just have one more little peep.
And open my eyes to a brand new morn’
And breathe my fire into the dawn.
