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.
