One snowy winter day,
I climbed aboard a brand new book
And slowly sailed away.
Some sandwiches of ham and cheese,
I took along with me,
As well as cookies, just fresh baked,
And thermos of spiced tea.
I traveled in a leisure way
With author at the helm.
She piloted her words with skill
To a romantic realm.
I visited some gorgeous sites,
Through great descriptive writing,
And lingered there for quite awhile,
Till came scenes more exciting.
Suspense and danger, found I next
With feisty girl in trouble,
Until the handsome hero came
And saved her on the double.
I loved the characters I met
Although they weren’t perfect.
They prayed, receiving help from God
To guide them through each conflict.
It saddened me to reach the end
Of my exciting trip
And sought to find another book
To be my sailing ship.
