Ode to Worn Books

January 17, 2008
By Amy Jensen, Orem, UT

I have worn books
And hope for many more.
For worn books
Are like feasts.
Delicious.
The words are
Colorful delicacies
Or extravagant entrees.
I hope to find my memories
And discoveries inside.
Like new passages
Of words
That lead me
To new passages
In my mind.
Only I have the key
To open a safe
Of bounteous beauties.
I simply read the
Words
And it becomes
Worn.
