Books This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
They call to me, enticing
From my overflowing shelves,
Their pages softly yearning
To share their untold wealth.

And I, the greedy reader,
Gladly give in to their pleas
And thumb through all the pages
With an air of practiced ease.

And with every page I’m turning
And with every chapter read
I’m getting closer to the ending,
But it’s a start I’ve made instead.

I really like this and the extensive vocabulary used. I can relate, I am actually half reading a book and half reading teenink at the moment. xD

Bravo! You did very well at creating a rhytmic feel that avoided choppy phrases. Overall, well written!
