Summer 2011 writing comp winners – Under 9s

For our summer writing competition, we asked you to write a poem and include the word ‘dragon.’ Here is the winner in the Under 9s 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 9s winner: L Massey (VIC)

DRAGON

My brother wants a dragon, a green one for he
Why do you want a green dragon?
To hide among the leaves

My friend wants an orange dragon, an orange one will do
Why do you want an orange dragon?
To see the fire it can spew

I want a rainbow dragon, a rainbow one for me
Why do I want a rainbow dragon?
Cos it’s the best you see!
