'A Thousand Books to Read'
and post notes and photos about your poem like Constance La France.
My library has grown and grown,
so many books- my shelves groan;
there are more books than I can ever read,
but they keep coming like a need.
There are tilting piles of books along walls,
accumulated in time both the big- and smalls;
books, books on each table . . .
to read I will be unable.
I can hear them - whispering to me their story;
a thousand doors into love, fury and glory . . .
