Impression of an Avid Reader II

Dsc02480by Michelle Seyner14 Sep 2019

I've walked with Michael Valentine
as Strangers in the Strangest Land,

I found eternal love for Heinlein,
held galaxies in my own hand,

I discovered Sense & Sensibility
and found a room all of my own,

I learned the soul's unconquerable
and I no longer felt alone

I know now why the caged bird sings,
I met a merchant once, in Venice

I watched the forging of the Three Great Rings
and saw villains spread their menace

I saw Ned Stark losing his head
due to Joffrey's fit of rage

and all my adventures I will lead
by just turning a page.
