A Sonnet For Books:
Where can you go to escape what’s mundane
Where can you travel to wisdom attain?
What can turn a horrid day
Into one of utter bliss?
Where can you rescue from La Guillotine
Then destroy Durin’s Bane,
Help The Pevensies defeat a wicked queen
Then be home with naught amiss?
It doesn’t take much to travel
There and back again
And when you’re called home from the battle
You can pick it up again.
You’re never too far from this world of delight
As long as you have a good book and a light
