Description

Once They All Believed In Dragons

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!

"An excellent collection....Prelutsky and Sis...bring to life so many sorts of dragons: the large, the small, the ferocious, the technological, the gentle, the ominous, and the disconsolate. There's a `just right' quality to the verse that makes it a pleasure to read the words aloud. Their sounds fit together with seamless craftsmanship and their sense rewards listeners with humor, imagination, and occasional poignancy....Because it appeals on so many levels, this is one poetry book that won't siton the shelf for long."--Booklist.
