Summer Reading

Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie

by Jordan Sonnenblick


By Anonymous

Here’s an adventure! What awaits

Beyond these closed, mysterious gates?

Whom shall I meet, where shall I go?

Beyond the lovely land I know?

Above the sky, across the sea?

What shall I learn and feel and be?

Open, strange doors, to good or ill!

I hold my breath a moment still

Before the magic of your look.

What shall you do to me, O book?

What is your second book?
