Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

I'd Like a Story

I'd like a story of
Ghosts on gusty nights,
Wild island ponies galloping
With manes that wave like kites,
A book that knows the lowdown
On what to feed giraffes,
A book of nutty nonsense
That's nothing much--just laughs--

A book to read to find out
How basketball stars shoot,
Why dinosaurs all died out,
What do computers compute,
Which sail a mizzen sail is,
Can Martians really be,
How heavy a blue whale is,
Weighed side by side with me--

A book to curl in bed with,
To browse in by a brook--
Anytime!

Anyplace!
I'd like any book!

X. J. Kennedy
