Quills and Spills

I was gifted a large quill and a bottle of ink
at a tender young age, prompted me to think;
of castles with dragons and even fairy tales.
This young imagination seem never to fail.

The ink created worlds, I could only imagine;
horses with wings and ruby butterflies.
Lost in the story, the glory, no distraction-
thoughts supplied reality, no need for redaction.

Dinosaurs roam freely across the paper-
leaving their footprints , never a danger.
While tigers and goats have tea at playtime,
in this whimsical world of fantasy and rhyme.

    New to your site, but this is great. The quill moves ink in mysterious ways. This time it took us to a lovely place.

    The beauty of a quill is in its power to create beautiful worlds. Well written tribute to the fantastic worlds created by the quill.
