Books Fall Open
by David McCord
Books fall open, you fall in,
delighted where you've never been;
hear voices not once heard before,
reach world on world through door on door;
find unexpected keys to things locked up beyond imaginings.
What might you be, perhaps become,
because one book is somewhere?
Some wise delver into wisdom, wit,
and wherewithal has written it.
True books will venture, dare you out,
whisper secrets, maybe shout
across the gloom to you in need,
who hanker for a book to read.

Merry Christmas, fellow bookworms! Once again, real life has gotten in the way of my blogging and I've been absent for a while. :( But I wanted to be sure to stop by to say that I hope you all had a very happy holiday season, and to wish you all a very happy New Year!
