“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.”

-Helen Keller

 

The Sun Never Says

 

Even after all this time

The sun never says to the earth,

“You owe Me.”

 

Look what happens with

A love like that,

It lights the Whole Sky.

Reading Fantasy

read

I sit beneath my reading tree

The open pages singing to me

I sail storm-tossed oceans

With handsome heroes as mateys

We fight for good

Over snowy peaks and in sparkling pink seas

How can I stop with the pirates attacking

Who could leave with a princess in need

I’ll finish just one more chapter

Just one more page for me

Lost

library

“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.”
― Charles William Eliot

Someday I’m going to get lost in my library

I’ll sit down to read a good fantasy

 

And them maybe just one other

 

And when I am done, I will be shocked to discover

Old man winter had come

 

And then what can I do but find a few more pages

To go flipping through
