A Book is a Magical Door

A book is a magical door

     any child can open any time and

          pass into faraway realms of wonder so serene,

          see amazing creatures and things as yet unseen,

          meet interesting people with whom you've never been.

A book is a wonderful door

     every child should open, and

          here's the key, which should not come as a shock:

               "There's no need to knock."
