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.

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!

I WISH I WERE A DRAGON

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.
