The Book

               Judge not the book by it's cover
                     For the cover is hard
             Turn the pages with tender fingers
        You will feel the heart and soul of the book
                  And of he who wrote it
       Be gentle and loving as you turn the pages 
                You will find a story of beauty
                                For 
       Your touch helps create the story within
       Look and imagine the beauty it may hold
       So use loving care as you turn the pages 
                               And 
  You may find it is your story that has been written
                 So look beyond the cover 
                               For 
            It may be beauty you find within
