A Nook and a Storybook

What would I give for a book and a nook I'd forfeit some cash from my pocketbook Surrender my coat to a hanging wall hook Then give it a look , as long as it took I'd roll back the stone, crawl into a cave Find Ol' Tom Sawyer, take some close shaves Look for Boy Wonder, help free some slaves Hunt for lost gold, discover old graves Go room to room, look high and low Ride on a broom, escape through a hole Go with the wind, fly over rainbows Ride chariots of fire where ever they go Search lost horizons with great expectations Go hunting for bison in Indian Nations Swim with Poseidon and gather crustaceans The suspense would heighten my imagination A book and a nook, a perfect day Rain or shine, take me away To read every line on every page Spend all my time, that's what I'd pay an original poem by Daniel Turner

beautifully penned quatrain Daniel with great imagery - reading transports us to another world but now I prefer to read poetry rather than novels:-) hugs Jan xx

Thank you Jan. Reading a magazine will do the trick, as long as I am learning something or stimulating my mind. I appreciate your kind comments. Peace:)
