Dragon Poem

Child

Are all the dragons fled?
Are all the goblins dead?
Am I quite safe in bed?

Nurse

Thou art quite safe in bed,
Dragons and goblins all are dead.

Child

When Michael's angels fought
The dragon, was it caught,
Did it jump and roar,
(Oh Nurse, don't shut the door),
And did it try to bite?
(Nurse, don't blow out the light).

Nurse

Hush, thou knowest what I said,
Saints and dragons are all dead.

Father (to himself)

O Child, Nurse lies to thee,
For dragons thou shalt see,
Please God that on that day,
Thou may'st a dragon slay,
And if thou dost not faint,
God shall not want a Saint.
