The Traveling Sofa

My daddy and I are reading a book,

the two of us snuggled together

under a throw, sipping our cocoa,

safe from the blustery weather.


A book is a ticket to travel the world,

to take us to never-seen sights:

Camelot, Narnia, Wonderland, Oz,

or dreamy Arabian Nights.


Tonight we have traveled to tropical lands,

away from the ice and the snows

with Babar and bride, the king and the queen,

elephants dressed up in clothes!


A daily vacation of wonderful fun,

a marvelous, mystical ride;

a balm for the brain (settled down on your bum)

that’s what a book can provide!
