Dragon (Monday Poem)

by Nikki Grimes

Say "dragon,"
and I raise my shield,
fend off the fire
of his mighty breath.
Then, when he's not looking,
I scramble onto his back,
grab a handful of scale,
and ride him across the sky
till the sun dives
into the sea.

from Words With Wings by Nikki Grimes, 2013, Wordsong
