I was given this book several years ago
By a relative meaning well,
And for a book I'd never say no --
But I think my parents wish, well ...
It was this book that changed my life
And made me hear those tunes;
It was this book that ended strife
Now I dance with other loons.
Its characters did spring to action
A fairytale of music and colour
That caused in me a strong reaction
My resistance was a goner.
Far better written than this poem
I hope you're pleased to know,
To anyone, this book I'd show 'em
And hope they love it so.
