BOOKS

(the next chapter)

I’m tucked under my covers
Just trying to read.
My books are my friends
They’re all that I need.

They take me to places
I never could go.
There’s nothing better than words
Just say it ain’t so.

I don’t want to go play
I just want to read.
Don’t make me go out
Just please let me be.

Although books are my favorite
Of that there’s no doubt.
Perhaps I SHOULD do something
Worth being written about.

BOOKS

(the next chapter)

was originally part of the other BOOKS poem, but it was too long and I thought they read better as separate poems.

And I do REALLY love to read books.
