Ode to Books

January 9, 2011
Open its pages, unfurl the magic
Let the words flow, both hope and tragic
Rowling, Tolkien, Meyer and more
All writing to open a door

Imagination leaps from the pages
It is an escape from reality
Worlds with dragons, wizards, and mages
It is an escape from reality

The simple smell of a fresh book
Draws you in like a hook
It’s a wonderful way to expand your mind
Open up a book, its well worth your time!
