If twenty dragons fire sneer,
- mountains melt, to moppet's cheer,
- green-tailed havoc, earthen thunder,
- yet, small boy will crow in wonder.
- Gastronomic urgings first,
- Davy Crockett's righteous guile,
- goblin, monster, unrehearsed,
- audienced in Mother's smill.
- Fireman by firelight,
- pioneer and sailor bold...
- bright companions of the night,
- dreaming men are never old.
