Poetry Schmoetry Blogfest: Wild Rumpus at the Library
Poetry Schmoetry Blogfest is Here!
Check out Writing With Shelly for more details.
Let the Wild Rumpus Begin At the Library
Once upon a time in a basement library nook
I stumbled upon my first favorite book
Pulled into adventure as the pages unfurled
I found treasures greater than gold or pearls
In a book that took me sailing through night and day
I joined in the wild rumpus just long enough to say
a home with love and a supper waiting, nice and hot
was more important than being Queen or King on the spot.
My imagination took my swinging through trees,
and I could return home when I pleased.
I met wild characters and creatures from many lands
and had adventures in mountains, seas and sands.
Once upon a time in a basement library nook,
I fell in love with the soft pages of a book.
The pages turned, the adventures unfurled,
and I held a treasure greater than gold or pearls.
If you know what "first favorite" book I'm referring to, please comment!
