“The Gift of a Book”
Sitting here as the world goes by
As you go by
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?
