The mocking mystery, the subtle secrets,
The joy of uncovering the layers of a book.
The intricate inhabitants, colorful creatures,
All are found in the windings of a book.
Elves goblins and orcs, warriors, men
Battle for power in the realm of a book.
Lords ladies and kings, outlaws, thieves
Plot treason within the caves of a book.
The nightmarish dreams, the cowering nights
Inspired by horrors described in a book.
But also the joy, the soaring elation,
Is brought into being because of a book.
