Poetry Friday: Knights and Dragons

Lego KnightI’ve been reading stories about dragons lately and it reminded me of a poem from Now We Are Six by A. A. Milne. It’s just such a cute poem about a little kid playing at being a knight and fighting dragons that I couldn’t resist sharing it! The Lego knight seemed the perfect image to pair with it somehow (but that may just be me wishing I still had Legos to play with).


Whenever I’m a shining Knight,
I buckle on my armor tight;
And then I look about for things,
Like Rushings-Out, and Rescuings,
And Savings from the Dragon’s Lair,
And fighting all the Dragons there.
And sometimes when our fights begin,
I think I’ll let the Dragons win…
And then I think perhaps I won’t,
Because they’re Dragons, and I don’t.

Have fun slaying dragons (or making friends with them!) today! The round-up is over at Chicken Spaghetti today, so go check it out!
