CENTRAL HEATING: Poems about Fire and Warmth

(excerpt)
Dragon
Who wouldn't care to be
	a dragon?
To be master of fire
	and air?
To wander through a field or two
        torching ricks of hay?
To take to the sky and declare you're there
	with a fireworks display?
In winter not to worry if it's snowing
	or it's sleeting?
To snuggle in a pleasant cave
	where you're the central heating?
