Reading

Rebecca Clements (7)

 

In reading fantasies come true 

In reading you can see things 

you never thought were true

In reading people may be blue 

You don’t know till you are through

You can battle dragons

And befriend them too

You can see life 

From another point of view

Reading is magical 

If I can say so myself

Just flip through the pages 

So you can see these things

From a princess in a tower 

To a dog going home 

A book can make you see things

You never could alone
