Alone in the Attic

Once loved,
Now long forgotten and lost,
Silly rhymes and vibrant drawings
Cover each story,
Top to bottom

Laughter enclosed in the pages,
Keep tales company,
As they sit and wait for another to read,
Another young soul to find them,
And enjoy



Age frays the edges and corners,
Crisp, white pages fade,
Yellowing curls appear,
A gleam of sunlight breaks monotony
The book falls open

The author's comments:
This is dedicated to my sister, who loves to read as much as I do.
