Don't you just love everything a book offers. You've captured it well in this engaging poem! I recently passed my copy of Khalil Gibran's The Prophet to a friend of mine. His work truly is "Souls left shared...a gift forever in kind."
These things and more, written within your fold,Pages of wonder for us all to hold....reflective and apt, magical wording.
The very vitality of books expressed here. Marvellous.
It looks like you appreciate books.

'Authors unknown, famous within will spark' I love this line. There are so many authors (and some anon or forgotten) whose books no-one else have heard of. So nice to see that little light of respect for them, too! It's all in the read.....!
Words of a book lover cleverly crafted. The wonder of and my love for books, will never leave me.
Each book its own special treasure...a gift forever in kind. Yes. You are a true lover of the printed word and all the magic it evokes. Lovely magpie! Thank you.
I agree with Donna B and her feelings about kindle. A book signals something to come such as wisdom or perhaps entertainment. It also can feel good, smell good and look good especially after it gets a little age on it. Enjoyed your post -- barbara
