Today



Today
Or: "To the people who think bookworms have no life"
February 8, 2016

What did I do today? Oh, a hundred things!
I roamed the rustic woods, for start,
And trekked the mountain ‘til I found its heart.
I learned the charmed song the fairies sing
And was guest in marble halls of kings.
I walked with elves, questioned, and learned their art;
I road with knights as they their foes did part;
And I soared the skies on mighty dragon’s wings.
All these things and more I’ve done
Since the day has first begun.
And without once leaving my chair,
I’ve fought in wars and battles won.
For there’s no limit to dreams to take me anywhere,
I but open a book and then- poof! I’m there!

  1. Cool! Great poem. :D Accurately sums up a full day of reading. Going off of what I've read today, I have been a squirrel, ridden with the Crow Indians, suffered torture in a prison cell, and been the heroine of a fairy tale. Good times, good times...

    1. Thank you! Aaaaand sounds like you had a pretty interesting day. xD (Are you rereading Redwall, BTW? Just asking 'cause of the "been a squirrel" thing . . .)

    2. Actually, I started reading a story very much like Redwall. I think it must have been heavily inspired by it, at least. It's called The Mismantle series. So far, it's been a tad bit darker than Redwall. The writing style is slightly more juvinile, though. Still, it's pretty good, and it had me reading way later than I'd intended. :)

    3. Oh, cool! I think I've heard about Mistmantle before, but haven't gotten around to reading it.

  2. !! and now I want to read a book (more like finish Pendragon's Heir though - what with the knights and dragons and such)! *laugh-cries* too much work to do though :(

    1. Aw, sorry. I hope you can find time to read soon. Pendragon's Heir is well worth finishing.

  3. Haha, yes!
    Great poem. :D

    So far, I have:
    "Battled demons, flown with angels,
    Even cleaned a mucky stable.
    I've fought with power, flown with grace,
    And thrown a pie at Iron Man's face."
    I even had time to wash the dishes before lunch. XD

    1. Thank you!
      Sounds like an exciting day . . . though, I'm curious, what were you reading that you threw a pie at Iron Man? xD

    2. Hehe, that was more writing than reading, but it was the only thing I could think of that would hold the rhyme scheme. X)
