Dragon Feathers / by Chris Maynard


Birds are my standard themes for feathers. So I felt like I was headed off this theme with this one. But honestly, it came about through writing a poem about feathers for a children’s book:

Dragon Feathers

Some dinosaurs grew small plumes

To keep them warm from chilly doom

If dinosaurs had a few

Why then couldn’t dragons too?

But dragon fire would burn them off

Unless the quills were really tough

Scales is what a dragon’s got

‘cause with plumes they’d be too hot
