Welcome O’ Wanderer, to the greatest carnival on Earth,
You look all revved up to join this happening party!
Why don’t you relax with Long John Silver and his rum?
Or share a butterbeer with Harry if that strikes your fancy!
Join Snow White and Cinderella with their dizzy foxtrot,
And try your luck to kiss and wake the Sleeping Beauty!
Stop over to pat Moby Dick by the pond – he’s real friendly,
And hop over for an animated gambol with Timmy the Dog!
Glinda the Good Witch will merrily teach you her magic,
And while you’re at it, cheer up Sam and Frodo with some!
Try not to disturb Alice looking through the glass though,
And watch your head for Peter Pan juggling Miss Moppet!
This party is happening in every room around the world,
When any child picks up a book and unlocks his dreams!
Take some time to wipe the dust from your old bookshelf,
And unhook the anchor to sail towards your wonderland!
As a kid, I was living a part in almost every book I read – an escape into my personal fantasy. I forget now how easy it was to run away with my thoughts. The prompt given by Anthony at dVerse to go crazy with our imagination was a perfect way to bring my best friends back to life!
