I like a fairy tale
the plot of the quest

I like a subtle poem
imagining the rest

I like a mystery
the challenge of the test

(Except when on page eleven, I’ve the answer already guessed.)

I don’t mind a scare
I don’t mind a shiver

To me it’s all part
of life’s adventure

The books on my shelves
Are all my friends

But for my favorite stories
I love romance best.
