Soaring through the sky
Never having to say goodbye
Astride a glorious beast
Who is my companion at every feast.
This beast, who is a mighty dragon
Guards my home which is a wagon
Skimming lakes and chasing clouds
Playing hide-and-seek in misty shrouds.
He's not the only one of his kind
And he has a very intelligent mind
With scales that melt from shade to shade
And claws as sharp as a diamond blade.
He hides away in a mountain cave
This beast is extremely brave
Beside each other day by day
We live and work and then we play.
