    Swirls across sandy deserts and sweeps over the sea side.

    Where nobody says that I shouldn’t or should.

    The child knows best...
    A book's a story waiting to be read
    Taking one to where their feet never tread
    Be it fact or fiction whatever's told
    It's a mystery about to unfold.
