All-Weather Friends

    What do I do when it rains outside
    And I can’t go out to play?
    I curl up in my favorite chair
    And go visiting yesterday—
    Through the pages of a favorite book
    Where shiny knights of old
    Fought fiery dragons with scaly tails,
    Who guarded treasures of gold.
    Sometimes I read of a girl like me
    Near home or far away,
    And I’m grateful for my book friends
    On a stormy or sunny day.
