Children live in a world of magic and wonder. It is up to us not only to abate their fears, but also to spark their imagination and creativity. ~Lily of Lough Neagh~


Dragons Breath

 Little ones oh tell me please

With these blocks I dump for thee

Whilst rainy day do capture thoughts

And move you to your building blocks


Whilst thunder booms a terror drum

And lightening courses sky so glum

Willows limbs outstretched like arms

To grab at thee with graveyards charm


Fear not although you squirm and squeak

We’ll take these blocks which are unique

And next to settee we will build

Our little kingdom which reveals


Whilst storm doth rage and wind doth moan

And pelting rain doth touch our home

We build our castles high and strong

A moat to stop the charging throng


With glee and laughter fear no more

For we are strong for evermore

Settee mountain range shalt be

And rug afore us deep blue sea


Dragons breath be fought with swords

Our knights be strong for they do forge

And smote the dragons at our backs

And catapult arrests attacks!


Smiling laughter storms forgot

Fires warmth at hearth doth brought

And now old Sol hath come to shine

Rain now dripping off the vines


Scurry now and pick them up

Away with blocks their magic touched

And greet the noon of summer day

For now comes time for thee to play


Storms are gone the Knights hath won

Dragons gone and so thee glum

Kingdoms safe thine enemies gone

Our fortress held for we are strong


Carolee Dennis-Woosley

Thank you for sharing this imaginative account, Carol. Your "tale" would (does) appeal not only to children but to those who have retained their childlike wonder. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,

There is music in these words that the youngest of children will be able to hear, without knowing the literary meaning of a single one. ~~ Diana

This is a great way to distract your children when things make them afraid. It teaches them they are secure and you're there to protect them. Reading, I always read to my Mattie

Oh hey this is so cool. We have a daughter Megan she is 3 and we do a lot of floor play with her and read to her Lilly. Maybe you should write a children's book? That would be cool too, you are so talented in everything you do.

I remember playing with blocks, my brother and I. He never let me use the blue ones they were his favorites. It is so important we make our children feel safe and teach them to read.

Wonderful Lily in beautiful old style. Again you build blocks for children to erase their fears.

I bow and tip my hat to you

So long ago and far gone are the days that the world was whatever we wanted it to be. It is a precious gift of childhood to imagine and belive. Wonderful prose.

Stay well and keep writing

What a beautiful world to grow up in with you for a mother and grandmother protecting the wee ones from what rages without.
Reviewed by Gert van Weenen (Reader) 7/21/2012
You are the most wonderful grandmother in the world.
I can see you sitting on the floor with your grandchildren and doing these things to make them forget their fears till the sun breaks trough.

This is really fantastic Carolee
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton 7/21/2012
That is an amazing piece of poetry and besides that, it is magic within the little ones. To built, from block, a way to allay their fears of a particularly bad thunderstorm is a Godsend. It helps the little ones be creative and therefore their minds won't be so wrapped up in fear that the house is going to crumble and everybody die! I applaud you. Stand. Take a bow.
