Do you know Jack? Eleanor reminded me of a great children’s poetry collection…

A recent comment from one of our Facebook followers (Eleanor) reminded me of the poem below. It’s from The Dragons Are Singing Tonight by Jack Prelutsky (who also, incidentally, wrote The Frogs Wore Red Suspenders, the prize for our first contest…Enter now!!)

Once They All Believed In Dragons

by Jack Prelutsky
Once they all believed in dragons
When the world was fresh and young.
We were woven into legends,
Tales were told and songs were sung,
We were treated with obeisance,
We were honored, we were feared,
Then one day they stopped believing –
On that day, we disappeared.

Now they say our time is over,
now they say we’ve lived our last,
Now we’re treated with derision
Where we once ruled unsurpassed.
We must make them all remember,
In some way we must reveal
That our spirit lives forever –
We are dragons! We are real!
