“There once was a gentle dragon.
Danny Dragon was his name.
He wasn’t like the other dragons.
He didn’t make a flame.
The other dragons laughed at Danny
And put him down to shame.
‘You can’t be a fiery dragon,’ they said,
‘When you can’t even make a flame!’
When the other dragons went to play,
But Danny didn’t think it fun at all
To frighten passing folk.
Danny liked to sit in the flowers
And hum with the bumblebees.
He’d sing along with his forest friends
And the birds up in the trees.
Then came an invading army
That was led by a wicked knight.
They surrounded the kingdom’s castle
And were a terrifying sight!
The other dragons ran away.
They were very much afraid.
Danny, the little dragon,
Was the only one who stayed.”
