• The pages feel smooth
    And fragile in my hands.
    Time to escape
    To my own distant lands.

    Words jump off pages
    And fly before my eyes.
    I see far away places
    And big blue skies.

    Characters seem like friends
    That I have known forever.
    So many different traits
    Like kind, brave, and clever.

    Page after page
    I dive deeper and deeper.
    Until I must resurface
    And decide this ones a keeper.
