A doggerel series about the countries of the world.
I like those novels of the North—
Those thrillers that veer back and forth
Between a good or evil end—
On resolution we depend!
Stieg Larsson was a favorite with
Those “dragon” books—played with the myth.
But Sweden! Yes! A magic place
With mountains, fjords—it’s the case
I see those places in my mind—
Though I’ve not been there, have not dined
On Swedish specialties—like bread
(Of much of it I’ve often read).
And I’ve not been to Stockholm—yet.
(I put a “yet” to hedge my bet).
But were I young, I’d love to sail
To Sweden—then to tell my tale.
