Dragon in the Sky

poem by Kate Williams , illustrated by David Legge

The tip of a spike,

the point of a claw,

the flash of a flame:

that’s all I saw.


Smoke from a fire:

that’s all I smelt.

a tingle of fear:

that’s all I felt.


The whirring of wings,

like a gigantic bird

stirring the wind:

that’s all I heard.


Ran off and hid:

that’s all I did,

until the sky cleared

and the signs disappeared

and the dragon was far and high.


Wish I had waved





Dragons: super or scary?
