Your best friend…A nice book…Enjoy books on happy World Book Day and always…
© Lost in a book…
As a child when I was lonely and alone,
With no true friend to call as my own,
This one buddy never ever let me down,
Always felt like a princess with a crown.
From first page till last I would thrive,
In the vast ocean of words when I dived,
Searching for treasures with Famous Five,
Wishing for Richie’s wealth like a naive.
Marvelled at the magic of Mandrake,
Diana and Phantom gave me heartache,
Mason, Poirot and Sherlock kept me awake,
Every moment was like a different snowflake.
As I grew, my heroes caused me much pain,
Pride and Prejudice sure became my bane,
Jeffery Archer made my mind little insane,
My books I loved, I am not one to complain.
Now am at the hearty middle age of fifty,
Though words go a dancing and go twisty,
Wearing glasses and with a shot of whisky,
I want to get lost again in that world so nifty.
