Dragon Lily

Lily, a dragon,
on the first day of school
wore flowers around her neck
so she could look cool.

And when it was time
to go out and play,
Lily just sat
and sniffed on her lei.

So while other dragons
were breathing with flame,
 Lily was sweet
and acted quite tame.


  1. Refreshing change for a dragon. Great poem, Joy.

    1. Thank you. I have 4 dragon poems I've written now, I may work toward a collection.

  2. Did I hear collection? Oh yes! Could the dragon dance and dream of fame? I can see her with the hula dancers!
