Come with Me!

    I’ve had the most amazing day!
    I traveled thousands of miles away.
    I went to planets, to stars, the moon.
    I talked to a cow and a blue-faced baboon.
    I learned why the anteater has a long nose,
    And why the wind howls, and how the wind blows.
    I practiced my whistling and learned how to skate,
    How to press flowers, and how to cut bait.
    I saw lowland marshes. I saw Highland flings.
    I saw butter churning and butterfly wings.
    Will you come tomorrow? It’s not very hard—
    I did it all with my library card.
