A Book for Me - a poem about books

A Book for Me
Greg Pincus

When what’s there on the page
Lets me feel someone’s rage,
Or the joy in the words
Makes me fly with the birds,
Or something I’ve read
Gets me out of my head,
Or the story on view
Helps me see something new,
Or the book sets me free...
It’s a book that’s for me.

Greg, tried to use your tweet this button so as to share with other bookish types, but no go.

Thanks for the comment, Susan. I've been meaning to update my Tweet stuff for some time. I might update again soon (or at least after I sleep!), but for now I've changed it to something that works.

"...makes me see something new..." I agree completely, that's my kind of book. Thanks, Greg. said...

And your poems are wonderful for us. Like!

So true - books take you to other places and experiences you might never have otherwise! That's why I love them so much. Thanks for sharing.
