Lost in the Book
The book opens up, and we dive into
The pages, of ivory white.
It’s a long jump, and the pages below
Looked far, but we still dive.
We land in a page, and suddenly are
Surrounded by butterflies. They
Fly, on the clear paper, and we
Move, trying to not disturb their flight.
We continue, away from that page, and
Land in a different background.
Now, seashells are around us,
Colorful seashells that look like stars.
In each scenario, we become part
Of the book, part of the story. You run
From page to page, and smile, and I just
Follow you, and the pages ahead of us.
Oh, how privileged those who can
Get lost in the books, you say, like
You and I! Another page turns,
And you smile one more time.
