The Moon Dragon's Dream
Snug in a crater on the loon
Sprawled on an icy mound of stones
With silver scales that rise and fall
A dragon snores in silent tones
In that still night our dragon dreams
itfs party time at Vacuum Cave
A friend from every planetfs here
Donft miss Billenium Dragon Rave!
With dragonfs fire to light the scene
They dance upright, their claws enlace
Join Martian Red and Neptune Blue
Those writhing tails in tight embrace
I bid you welcome to the Moon!
We meet again, a billion years
have passed, but whiskers still so young!
Make merry, cast away your fears!
The partyfs over, time to part
Propelled by fire the guests zoom on
across the vast expanse of space
Our dragon wakes. Therefs only one!
