The Dragon’s Egg

Another tale from the pages of allpoetry.com written by me – Enjoy the read

Some workers were digging

up pipes underground,

when a very large coloured egg

in the sand it was found.

Now, the foreman of th’ site

didn’t know what to do,

so he called up some keepers

from th’ local zoo.

The egg.. it was green,

and blue, brown and red,

and was lain in the ground

deep down in a bed.

A bed of red sand,

of twigs and of clays –

it looked as if th’egg

had been there for days.

Said the worker to foreman –

“where’d it come from?” ,  Said the Foreman – “Dunno!?!”

And just then the egg

it began to glow.

So the keepers arrived,

with their boss from the zoo,

with a team to see if

there was summat they could do.

“it could be a snake” – the zoo boss replied.

Some big builders turned – and ran off to hide!

As builders they gathered to mend their pride,

the keepers could hear a noise from inside…

The head keeper thought –

there was summat amiss,

as the egg it both glowed

and started to hiss.

The little creature inside,

was feeling awfully glum

as all that it wanted was its

Dad and its Mum

“No need for alarm!”, the zoo boss he said

“we need to give th’egg, some sort of bed

nothing to0 great and nothing so grand..”

so the builders brought over some big bags of sand.

So th’egg it was rested

in its warm sandy bed

just as two shadows

loomed overhead.

“Oh Heavens!” cried a builder

“Begorrah! Begad!

I think i’ve just seen

Th’ eggs Mum and Dad!”

Two big scaly dragons, one green and one blue,

over the heads of the people they flew.

The Head Keeper called for everyone’s calm –

he knew that the dragons, didn’t mean any harm.

And little egg it glowed brighter

as little dragon did peck

and Mum and Dad Dragon

landed on th’ deck

And Mummy Dragon landed,

as Dad flew over sky

as dragons egg it opened

and the contents it said “Hi!”

And Dragons’ smiled kindly

nodding thank you to the team.

They named their little lad “Burnie” –

who was their little red dream

They then made their Zoo friends happy,

as they watched three dragons at night

as Mum and Dad took little Burnie

Off on his first little flight.

And then, politely nodding

they said their thanks and goodbye.

As the dragon’s family headed

to their home up high in the sky!
