Puff the Magic Dragon

November 16th, 2010 · 6 Comments · lucy, music, oliver, video

When I was small, Peter, Paul and Mary sang a song about “Puff the Magic Dragon”. It was recognisable to me then as being a slightly sad tale. Now as a parent it seems even more poignant, seeing my own children growing up so very fast before my very eyes. In fact, the illustrated book of the song even seems to hint visually that the boy grows up to have a daughter who also befriends Puff. Or maybe that’s just me being soppy and reading between the pictures.

Oliver knows the words to the song and sometimes sings it with us at bedtime. On Sunday evening as we were making dinner, Oliver found the CD and put it into his CD player which has two microphones. From the living room, I soon heard the sound of both my children singing along. I sneaked in and filmed their performance.

I’d keep them this size forever if I could.
