Chinese New Year


DRAGON OF THE NEW YEAR
By Serena
(Inspired by her "Dragon" painted with Indian ink from Mr. Tony's class)

I start to grow cold
When I see you
With your scales of gleaming gold
And your coat of blood-shot red
And your thundering voice
That rings through the air
Like the bells on a steeple.

Dragon, O Dragon
What is this year?

Dear child,
It is Chinese New Year.
