I Met A Dragon Face to Face

By Jack Prelutsky

I met a dragon face to face

The year when I was ten,

I took a trip to outer space,

I braved a pirate's den,

I wrestled with a wicked troll,

And fought a great white shark,

I trailed a rabbit down a hole,

I hunted for a shark.


I stowed aboard a submarine,

I opened magic doors,

I traveled in a time machine,

And searched for dinosaurs,

I climbed atop a giant's head,

I found a pot of gold,

I did all this in books I read

When I was ten years old.
