Reading To A Child - Poem by Marilyn Lott

You open up so many doors
When you read to a child
Their imagination becomes so vivid
As they are artistically beguiled

A world they couldn’t otherwise
Put strongly in their mind
Now looms to the forefront
Other thoughts are left behind

They are drawn into another place
Taken from their daily world
Shot out like from a cannon
Another planet they’ve been hurled

Suddenly they are transfixed
Ideas are not the same
They learn also how to write
Reading others who’ve found fame

It starts a different train of thought
Sometimes strong or maybe mild
But it opens so many vivid thoughts
When you’re reading to a child!
