Thursday’s Quote From John Lennon

Dilly the Dragon

One day Dilly the dragon
sat with her tail waggin’

While staring at a flower
hour after hour after hour

Waiting for it to open
without her ever once mopin’

The other dragons thought Dilly
was acting pretty darn silly

‘Til hearing her delighted cries
when the flower opened its eyes

And they all ran to see
the greatness of its beauty

But by the time they’d come
the blooming was over and done

And left Dilly alone to sing
of the joy the flower did bring!

My Hair

There was a day
that as I played

A sparrow came down
my hair to braid

So very, very still
is how I stayed

That I no harder
his chore then made

He worked and worked
not to be delayed

Until he had finished
with my beautiful braid!
