A Poem for the Pavilion

This is a legacy story from an earlier version of our website. It may contain some formatting issues and broken links.

Earlier today, we were visited by the Beech class of St Giles School, Horsted Keynes. The pupils wrote this poem about a Royal Pavilion dragon. We like it a lot, and thought we’d share it with you.

The Brighton Pavilion Dragon

Body as flexible as a gymnast,
as bendy as a rubber tube.
Scales as strong as a suit of armour,
smooth as they can be.

Lashing tail, deadly as cobra’s poison,
coils of silver-plated muscle
glistening in the light of the chandelier
As long as a giant python.

Teeth as sharp as diamond daggers.
Forked tongue, gritty like sandpaper.
Bloodshot eyes as big as bowling balls.
Volcanic fire like a scorching oven.

Wings patterned with a leaf-like structure,
twisting and turning like shiny, leather parachutes.
Silver palm trees, bony like a skeleton,
shimmering wildly under the moonlight.

By Beech class, St Giles School, Horsted Keynes

Well done Beech class!
