Read To Me

Read to me riddles, read to me rhymes
Read to me stories of magical times
Read to me tales about castles and kings
Read to me stories of fabulous things.
Read to me pirates, read to me knights,

Read to me dragons and dragon back flights
Read to me spaceships and cowboys and then
When you are finished, please read them again.
