I Like Reading
I like reading dad’s old leaflets.
I like reading mum’s receipts.
I like reading things in secret.
I like reading in the street.
Sad or funny, fact or fiction,
brochures, comics, I don’t mind.
Atlases are my addiction.
Give me words and I’ll unwind.
I like reading cornflakes packets.
I like reading magazines.
Lust for words? I do not lack it.
I read magic in my dreams.
I like learning and exploring.
Reading is my rocket fuel.
Just don’t make me read those boring
books we study at our school.
