Brian Patten, a Liverpoolian poet was asked by the English Heritage to write a poem, the poem is called The True Dragon

And here’s an excerpt from the poem:

St George was in awe of it [The Dragon]
It was a thing apart
He hid the sleeping dragon
Inside every English heart


Let’s celebrate St George’s Day,
The dragon in repose;
The brilliant lark ascending,
The yew, the oak, the rose
