A Silverblue Dragon Named Leroy Magee - Poem by M. Scott Cooper
I once met a dragon, as once he met me
a silverblue dragon named Leroy Magee
a wacky and whimsical dragon for sure
as playful and kind as a dragon could be
we played in the playground, we played in the school
we played in the game room (I beat him in pool)
we played in the attic, the basement, the stairs
we played in the heat and we played in the cool
one day at the playground, just Leroy and I
a silverblue star fell right out of the sky
I picked it up quick, it was cold to the touch
and wouldn't you know it, the star, it said 'Hi! '
'Now listen, ' it beamed, 'I've got something to state!
'I'm sent for old Leroy, it really can't wait!
You see, I mean Leroy, well yes, here's the thing
your mama's made dinner and you're very late! '
'Well gee, ' rumbled Leroy, 'It's really been fun
but I'm really late so I really must run! '
I told him no worries, that I could relate
so I waved goodbye as he flew past the sun
now parents may tell you, and teachers may say
that searches for Leroy will end in dismay
but I can attest, if by chance you should fear
the mind, like a fire, can brighten the way
