The books that call me
and tell the story that they live to tell
greet me
just as my mother greets me
with open arms

Let the book walk you
through its story

Look at every chapter
page
paragraph
sentence
word
and letter
to understand its life --

the soft words
that can send you to sleep
or bounce you out of bed
at six in the morning


The author's comments:

I wrote this piece after reading, and being inspired by, Emily Dickinson's "The Train."
