Wagon with a Dragon

What’s the good of a wagon
without any dragon
to pull you for mile after mile?
An elegant lean one
a gold-tinted green one
wearing a dragonly smile.
You’ll sweep down the valleys
you’ll sail up the hills
your dragon will shine in the sun
and as you rush by
the people will cry
“I wish that my wagon had one!”

I am fully booked with orders for the rest of 2013 (and a bit beyond). Check out the Softiemaker Showcase, a directory of independent softie-makers around the world who offer the service of making soft toys from children’s drawings. Or, subscribe to my website (below the facebook grid of faces) and wait for my news.
