“Mystery” by Horatio Perry

Horatio Perry (age 7)


Swift as though a mouse is running,
quick as though a banker’s funding,
black as when a reindeer hides,
swifter than a dragon glides,
faster than a page is turning,
hotter than a log that’s burning,
like spells that are so very solemn
mystery has never fallen.

Horatio Perry: “It is fun and exciting, but most of all I get to share my imagination with others.”
