The Lonely Dragon

There lived a dragon by the sea
he was very lonely indeed
he thought he was the last of his kind
he spent his days in his mind
he hoped for a friend who would be there till the end

He drew charred pictures
with his fiery breath
until a mouse came
all his pictures were the same

The mouse brought berries
she brought some cherries
to brighten the pictures
that were so dark and grey

They went on a journey
to end his yearning
they checked the local fires
higher and higher
try as they might
there was no dragon in sight

His hope was gone
he was too tired to go on
his great big search
for a dragon on her perch

He sulked away
but realized in a way
his best friend had always been there
they were a perfect pair

The mouse had brought colour
like the flowers in summer
his heart was at rest
she had made him his best

2nd place winner Annika age 11 who will also receive a ticket to the show thanks to Fairview Family Law.



There once was a hobbit named Bilbo Baggins,
he was a burglar, he had to steal a dragon’s,
pile of coins jewels and gold, the journey there was very cold.


The dragon was Smaug, out of the fog.
he was red and mighty in all his glory
tunneling through a sea of his treasure.
There is a key to this place, after you find it you must race!


For the last day of fall, the keyhole will call, and appear!
If you are daring, you may hear
the silent sounds of a dragon stalking underground.
In treasure he will lie, at night he will fly, off for a bite.


Smaug’s wings in rhythm of one, his hunting has begun.
Beware if you see him with one glance, you will note you haven’t a chance.


So Mr. Bilbo Baggins, snuck to the dragon’s.
Along with his twelve friends. They were near the end.
to defeat the dragon but take his treasure in what? A wagon?
One ring glittering light, in the middle of the night.
How can they do it? With his breath Smaug lit up the cave
with Bilbo trying to be brave.


Dragon glaring, nostrils flaring,
flies to a town in his anger.
All townsfolk are in danger!
Behold, the power of Smaug!
