I was just a young girl of nine or ten
When I found something so special
It drew me in and kept me there
I was lost in its trance
Quietly alone in my imagination
I read, my first novel
I remember the author
Julie Andrews, and the title was
I can still remember small details
Of my first novel, it opened my soul
Up to all around me.
Enchanting and forever
How for oh!, such a short time
A story becomes a friend
Entwined until it is finished
Always sad, aching for more
At the conclusion.
