An Unexpected Guest


One hot and boring day,
I went outside to play,
I saw a dragon in the garden
and said ‘I beg your pardon’?

The dragon was surprised
he didn’t realize
that little boys could talk,
really, he was in shock.

He said: ‘I’m stopping by
to see a butterfly’.
his wings are gold and red,
his name is Happy Fred.’

I said: ‘oh don’t you worry,
I scared you, I am sorry,
the roses by the shed
are where we’ll find your Fred.

It really was quite sweet
to see the two friends meet,
we had a rugby match
and played a game of catch.

They both flew on to Rome
and me? I went back home.
Now do you wonder why?
‘cause little boys can’t fly.

Oh, if only the little boy could have flown off to Rome with the friendly, green dragon and his little friend. I wonder what adventures they would have had. =)

Becki said...

Your little dragon is adorable, and I imagine the little boy is too. Perhaps, one day he'll fly to Rome to meet his friends again.
