I have never seen the perilous past,
But I have read multiple history books.
I have never lived on the Greek island of Corfu,
But I have been on holiday there.
I have never battled a bashful brown bear,
But I have done free sparring with my karate teacher.
I have never befriended a tiger with menacing teeth,
But I have befriended a partridge chick with fluffy feathers.
I have never climbed Mount Everest,
But I have ran across How Hill, with its emerald green grass.
I have never walked across Europe,
But I have trekked along Weavers Way.
