I travel by magic

that takes me away

to countries and people

and places to play.

I visit with Martians,

with cowboys and kings.

To circuses, planets,

I fly without wings.

I travel to jungles

or mountains or seas,

for games I can play

in places like these.

No travel by ocean

or highway or air

is as magic as travel

by books in my chair.
