Congratulations to Thing 2!

Congratulations to our other writer in the family! Thing 2 is one of the winners of our library's annual poetry contest! Needless to say, he's ecstatic about it. He'll even get a chance to read his poem at a special celebration along with the other winners. Thing 1 got to do this last year and it was a very nice event. His poem is called "Dragon's Roaring." Here it is:

Dragon's Roaring


The dragon’s roaring
The wind blowing
The trees falling
These are the signs of a dragon coming.

Quick!
Pack your things!
A dragon is coming!
Don’t trip or fall!
A dragon’s coming!
Don’t fly a plane or the dragon will get you!
Don’t drive or the dragon will chase you!
Just run!
Just run!
A dragon is coming!

Great imagery. I loved the rhythm. It felt like it was picking up speed as I read. I really felt the urgency in the repetition--'just run just run' at the end. Great job!
