Ecstasy Of A Book

Searching for a marvellous wonder could never be so easy.
Exploring about in a boggy marsh couldn’t possibly be instantaneous!
Or perhaps, you fancy uncovering all the secreted treasures of the world,
But don’t want to leave your house…is it plausible?
It is when you embrace a book.
A book is a place where heroes are told of there fancy and chivalrous strides,
of when they mounted their horses and held up there swords
to defend on their families side.
Where they fought for there loved ones with all that they had,
As monsters and trolls and enemies all bad
Tried to takeover the lands they called home,
Destroying the life of the plants where they roamed. But all of a sudden,
A mage held up his hands and scourged out his magic throughout all the lands.
Then along came a pirate with a round golden hook…
Now these are adventures only found in a book.

    Nice write. I happen to like reading about those times of knights and castles and mysteries to be solved. I can't understand people who don't read or who can't find something interesting to read.
