The Wonderful Strand

I long for the Strand

and its infinite possibilities:

From dragon slayers to kings

To a dictatorial pig hierarchy.

I long for the Strand

and its authors A to Z;

Adichie makes me proud to be a woman

and Zadie reads me “White Teeth.”

No limits exist

Between pen and paper,

So read me some Rowling

Then some Shelley later.
