kate5kiwis: St Michael and the Dragon Festival !!!


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

St Michael and the Dragon Festival !!!

This week we had our St Michael and the Dragon festival...
"Dragon slayers don your armour!
Dancers polish your shoes!
Gnomes heat your forges!
There’s a dragon to confront!!"
We spent all morning making biscuits, flax swords, comets and streamers, village houses, a dragon’s lair, the gnomes’ cave and the King’s throne. It was an all-singing, all-dancing afternoon. Here's the play we performed with each other:
Fierce is the dragon's might!
Desperate is our plight!
All are dismayed!

We who on earth must dwell
Call on St Michael
To lend us his aid

St Michael:
Sparks from my sword I send,
Swift be the dragon's end.
