    Silly Dragon
    (made for the Harnkegger Games' poetry competition, and it actually won the silvery prize)

    Once there was a land far from here
    And there, many dragons dwelt
    They spat fire and ruled the skies
    Hoarded treasures and enjoyed their lives

    One dragon was a special one
    He disliked fire and having coin
    He sniffed blooms and tended plants
    He liked to get dirt on his hands

    The other dragons kept mocking him
    They thought real dragons should be grim
    "Real dragons don't care for gardening"
    "They should be mean and frightening!"

    The mocking made that dragon sad
    One day, he took his garden hat
    He walked straight down into a pond
    Where he could tend weeds with love

    One day, the dragons had a silly fight
    About a treasure, there's no doubt
    The fight turned the world into a fiery pit
    And all the dragons went extinct
    Except for one...

    The silly dragon wondered what was going on
    So it crept out from his peaceful pond
    To see how the world had burnt to ashes
    The air was heavy with all the sadness

    But the silly dragon didn't get upset
    It smiled and into the pond it went
    It drank all the water it could take
    And then it came up with haste
    It rose up and flew quite high
    And poured water down from the sky
    It spread seeds on the ground so bare
    And they grew into fields so fair
    The dragon planted blooms and greens
    Turnips, corn and apple trees
    There was no place left bare nor plain
    The world became alive again.

    Where is that silly dragon now?
    Into the pond he did go
    There he blows some water bubbles
    And enjoys eating tasty mussels
    To him, it never mattered really
    That he was born so silly.

    I was thinking: Maybe you could send your poem to the Gazette? They are always looking for works by talented artists for their Art's Corner.

    <begin of shameless plug for her Uncle's Newspaper:>

    That goes for all of you ofcourse! If you've written a nice poem or story, or made an artistic drawing, you can share it with the Shire by sending it to the Gazette: editors@brambleburygazette.com
    Recipes are always welcome as well.
