Snapping Dragons in Early May

snapdragons

Outside the castle
on a day as bright as May
a little snapping dragon
toddled my way.

"How do?" I smiled
as I tipped my hat.
And that is all
there was
to that.

Magaly over at Real Toads wanted a plant named after an animal (is a dragon an animal?) and she wanted it short, which suits my available brain cells perfectly. Do go check out the Toads. They have been writing like maniacs all month.

  1. One must be very careful with dragons, so I understand the speaker. Anything sudden or too pushy could have cause the dragon to snap. ;-)

  4. Ha! This needs to be read out loud to children--it is just the kind of image that a child's mind can appreciate--and that means its good for us older children too. Loved it, Sherry.

  10. Such a sweet bit of rhyme! Yes, one ought to be respectful of even the tiniest of dragons as you never know if and when they might snap.

  11. Just one more and then we can rest those weary brain cells, my friend. I like the whimsy here, the sound of a child's tale. It's been one h of a month, but we are making it our own. Not bad, hunh?
