Books They've been my trusty friends During these days of isolation While the virus preys on humanity They have offered consolation. When I venture out for my errands I always take one with me Beneath a spreading monkeypod tree I open the pages and feel free. Free to roam about and explore A carefree adventurous world Where intriguing people and cultures dwell And an alternate reality has unfurled. Far better than a YouTube video Books illumine the imagination Lightening the heaviness in the heart Bringing up hope and inspiration. Molly Moore
