Hi everyone, I hope you’re all living creatively fulfilled lives and are fully embracing the Autumn weather.
I love to read, as I’ve spoken about a few times, and I always try to encourage my young nephews to read as much as possible because really, where would we be without books? It’s my love of reading and the magic found within the pages of a good book that have inspired my poem today; I hope you enjoy it!
The Magic of A Book
To me a book is magical
It can do many a wondrous thing
It can take you to faraway planets
Or to have tea with an old English king
You can deep-sea dive with a mermaid
Or visit the old American west
You can see fairies and elves and ogres too
Or be a hero on an unending quest
With a book, you can smile when your feeling sad
Or it can be completely the other way round
You can get totally lost in its pages
And not ever need to be found
You can never be bored with a book in your hands
There’s always somewhere to be
There’s plenty of things to experience
And there’s always something to see
A book can help you to sleep as well
If you read it in bed of a night
And the lands from the pages may enter your dreams
When you shut your eyes to sleep tight.
As always, thank you for reading my words, it really does mean a lot!
Until next time,
