Old Friends

I have a special collection
Of books that I read long ago,
For which I have great affection,
They are like some old friends I know.

Perhaps I was meant to outgrow
My childhood story connection,
But the old sentimental glow
Still guarantees their perfection.

Books = Old friends. That's an equation I can get behind. My wife and I just watched a biography of Maurice Sendak who was such a big part of her growing up years. Those early memories of bonding with books never go away. A glorious write - Congrats on your win, Beth ~ John

Thanks very much John - I suppose there are lots of people who can relate to a love of books. I just hope they don't become totally obsolete.
