Anything is Possible in a Book

by Kelsey Henson

A story can start very tragic, but with fairy dust, turn to magic.
Unicorns fly, and dragons, too, rabbits can be green or blue.
A Dalmatian could have red spots and elephants have polka dots.
The magic from a wand can turn a puddle to a pond.
Ballerinas twirl and dance, horses love to jump and prance.
Cows can wear glasses and cougars wear shoes,
Agiraffe can wear clothing, and pigs can, too.
A newt can tell a joke, an octopus likes to tease and poke.
Frogs leap and bounce, cats like to play and pounce.
Dinosaurs and snowmen come alive, bears get honey from a hive.
Learn about how rockets fly and the planets in the sky.
Read about hurricanes that blow and what makes lava flow.
Just turn the pages and take a look, anything is possible in a book.
