These are a Few of My Favorite....Places

Poetic Asides – Poem-A-Day Challenge – Day 10 Prompt:

Today, the poetry prompt is to write a location poem. You can write about a city, a building, a planet, etc. I suppose the poem doesn't necessarily need to be "about" the place, but the location should play an important role in the poem.

Library

bookshelf packed with pages
paper lined with ink-black words
hardbound and fabric covered
choose your destination
Baum’s small farm in Kansas
and the Emerald City of Oz
Stevenson’s island of Treasure
Twain’s Mighty Mississippi
Verne’s Ocean in a Submarine
Tolkien’s Middle Earth
a library card, your ticket
on this imagination train
‘all aboard’ the conductor’s call
your journey begins
with the very first word
