How do you live a thousand lives,
in the span of only one?
How do you travel the universe
beneath the same old sun?
How do you sail the hero’s quest
when your ship is daydreams and air?
How can you fight off the raging hordes
if it’s bedtime before they’re there?
How do you meet the kings unborn
and the gods from days of old?
How do you delve the human hearts
and the wondrous secrets they hold?
Oh the things you’ll do, the places you’ll go
when you pick up a book and read -
Time and space are limitless
if you but follow where they lead.
