IN HONOR OF CHILDHOOD IMAGINATIONS AND MAGIC THAT IS LOST TO ADULT LIFE:

Peter, Paul & Mary Puff, The Magic Dragon

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,
Little Jackie paper loved that rascal puff,
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff. oh

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee.

Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail
Jackie kept a lookout perched on puffs gigantic tail,
Noble kings and princes would bow whenever they came,
Pirate ships would lower their flag when puff roared out his name. oh!

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee.

A dragon lives forever but not so little boys
Painted wings and giant rings make way for other toys.
One grey night it happened, Jackie paper came no more
And puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar.

His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain,
Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane.
Without his life-long friend, puff could not be brave,
So puff that mighty dragon sadly slipped into his cave. oh!

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee.

    Tammera, this is superb! And I love your dedication….I also believe that today’s children have lost much of that sense of magic and the innocence that accompanies it. I am so grateful I was ORDERED outside to play when growing up. My imagination ran wild out there! Wonderful image…so beautiful. And…a perfect dedication. BTW….Puff the Magic Dragon was my second daughter’s favorite song when she was about 2 or 3! She used to ride her rocking horse when listening to it. So sweet….and now she is a mom herself.

  • WHAT A SUPER COMPLIMENT!!
