Give me three, give me four,
Give me seven, give me more,
Give me books stacked to the door,
As long as the story is not a bore.
Give me romance, give me glory,
Give me villains, but not too gory,
Give me a chance to live like royalty,
And change my life with every story.

Remember when we met for coffee and tea and I mentioned my rejections? I had a thought…just because the magazines didn’t like my work, doesn’t mean I can’t share them with you guys! After all, my blog is a safe space, right?
This is a fun and silly poem with a child audience in mind, and a theme of reading and books. Hope you guys like it. Take that, magazines!
