For The Love Of Books

by Jackie Darnbrough

They provide paths

for a hesitant mind,

to search for answers

when the page is turned

They garnish with words,

deep joys and hurts.

Draw pictures, paint scenery,

absorb, enchant and define

when the page is turned

They provoke and inspire,

reassure and release,

feed laughter and pain.

Transform and transcend

when the page is turned.
