Once up on a time, a little green dragon with out
stretched wings, bright yellow saucer eyes, fiery breath,
and green scales on his little bony tail,
glides up to me like a ghost ship in full sail.
He perches so delicately on my castle window seal.
Each sunny day he comes to see me on his way to his
little cave in the side of the near by bonny green hill.
He tells me stories that his grandfather passed on to him,
about witches, wolves, scats and giant bats that kill.
We frolic in the warmth of the new born sun,
tell stories and sing songs of joy and have great fun.
Each day I can’t wait until he appears on my castle window
seal, so he and I can play and into the green forest run.
Friends we will always be, no matter how far we may
venture from cost to cost. For you see…
time means nothing to us,
because he's a little dragon and
I am a little ghost!
