“The Gift of a Book”

Sitting here as the world goes by

As you go by

Nobody notices

No one sees me

Just a book in my hands.

But I notice

I see you

I see the world for what it is and what it could be

Because of this book in my hands.

I’ve traveled the world

Solved the toughest mysteries

And dived to the deepest of seas,

I’ve journeyed through the stars

Battled warlords and orcs

And flown to the highest mountain peak.

There’s nowhere I haven’t been, and no place I cannot go

because of this book in my hands.

I see the world for the adventures that could be and the dreams yet to be realized,

And I see you, though you don’t see me.


Take this book from my hands

And let your eyes be opened and your imagination take flight.

I found this creative photo on 1000bookmarks.tumbler. I just got back from my trip several days ago, and it hasn’t been easy getting back into the swing of things, which is why I haven’t posted this week until now. But what better way to get back into the blogging groove than with a poem? 😉

How is your summer so far? Have you gone on any fun trips, whether it be through books or the average way?

  1. So beautiful! And a cool picture too. 🙂 As for fun trips, the average way 😛 …We’ll be going to my grandma’s in SD for a weekend. Kind of like a mini family reunion, because my cousins are going too. How was your trip? 🙂

    • Thank you! A trip to SD sounds fun, and making it a family reunion sounds even better! I hope you have a wonderful time there, Madeline.
      My time in IL was good! I got to see my grandma every day and take her out to lunch (and to Dairy Queen, heehee), and stay with a best buddy who also wants to publish one day. 🙂 I’ll have to write up a post and share some photos!

  2. Great poem! I had my trip to NYC and Philly but you know about that haha. I’m taking two more trips in October, one for a wedding and one to visit friends.
