Once upon a time...

a girl dreamed...
not of sugar plums and gum drops
Oh no!
But of a little
that would magically read her books.

So she scrimped
and she saved
every last Yuletide dollar.

Till the day,
yes this day,
when she stirred to a thump.

Away to the window
she raced in a flash.

And what to her wondering eyes should appear?

But a sweet little box
marked just for thee.

Could it be?
Oh yes!

Precious and cold
and I daresay ready to cuddle
the lass happily greeted
her long awaited
new friend
the ever handsome
Mr. Kindle.

    Oh, and BTW, sorry I haven't commented in a bit. I have been by a lot, but lately I've fallen prey to lurking more than commenting. So even if you don't see me, don't think that means I'm not out there. :)
