Stolen from firelion

Take five books off your bookshelf.

Book #5 -- final sentence of the book

Go there, my dearest, tell him I sent you,
and he will give you the key,
the magic key,

the little golden key which opens up the secret world of all dreams

the world of dreams
where eyes open wide
mouths open wide
ears open wide

and


especially my arms open wide

wide, wide open
open wide for you,

my dearest friend
my love

my marvelous
merchant of marvels.

~ The Merchant of Marvels and the Peddler of Dreams by Frederic Clement
