Theres something special about a book
the cover begging me to take a look.
The way its worn pages smell like wonder
draws me to become a story hunter.
The bookmarked pages from journeyers before
urging me to continue on and explore.
Avidly reading the words on this paper
I’m desperate to solve this mysterious caper.
Going forward on, until the end,
The impact of these words continue to ascend.
There’s something special about a book
tugs at my mind like a grappling hook.
I love to read! Working in libraries for 12 years put that appreciation for books in my heart for sure!
