Forgotten Words

Heartbreaking, the empty library, dust and cobwebs cover books, I turn the page of a book of age, the frayed chairs in cozy little nooks. Heartbreaking, all the forgotten works, old amber lamps light the way, of a book of age, I turn the page, maintained with love, once upon a day. Heartbreaking, are all the books I pass, words of forgotten writers, I turn the page of a book of age, like falling into deep, cool water. Zanila Rhyme January 8, 2013 For the Zanila Rhyme Contest

    It's sad to know that this generation and generations beyond will never know the smell of a book. It's great to know that the words will always be passed down but it's sad to know that they will never know what it's like to flip a page. To lick their finger to find what comes next. To dog ear a page so that they can pick up where they left off. Thanks for reminding ME of that. Rockman

    Su picking you as a winner is right on and her comments I think were as well---matter of fact, I loved the thought in this as #1 and with a couple tweaks I think you'd have been there---this is special Constance

    You must be a lover of books... I still enjoy the feel of them in my hand, the temptation to read the last chapter to know the end. Well written poem on the subject of forgotten books. Congrats on your win !!

    This contains the beginnings of a great ZaniLa Rhyme poem - I would have liked it if you would have explored this a bit further with more stanzas. The rhyming was off with "writers" and "water". Congratulations on your win, Constance. Best wishes, Suzette
