Fire by Shirley Hughes


Fire is a dragon
  (Better beware),  
             Dangerous and beautiful
  (Better take care),
   Puffing out smoke
  As soon as it's lit, 
   Licking up leaves, 
  Crackle and spit!  

  Sending up sparks 
Into the sky         
       That hover a moment 
 And suddenly die.
Fire is a dragon,   
Alive in the night;
Fiery dragon,       
Glittering bright.
