I Love My Books!


The pages crisp,
Some smooth, some brisk.
With foxing at the edges split,
Have stories wonderful, all well knit!
When I pick them up, soft and slow
I smile with glee
For I sure know,
I love my books, I love my books,
For they carry me where no one looks!

The scent serene,
Of those new pages;
A whiff subtle of nostalgic ages,
I breathe thee in,
Eager and keen,
As I turn the pages with a childlike glow,
I heave a sigh,
For I sure know,
I love my books, I love my books,
With a new yarn in every nook!

Some scary, some dark,
Some happy with love,
Mysterious and new,
There are all sorts I know.
With hope and joy,
They come and I pick,
I read them till the last page thick.
And I love my books, I love my books,
They are magical wings to cross every brook!
