Old Book

Have you ever read a book that hooked you from the start? Where the plotline was so magical you just couldn’t stop, so phenomenal it had you on the edge of your seat the entire time? I did my best to capture that remarkable book in a short poem, but of course you could write paragraphs about the experience! Which books resonate with you the most? Feel free to share in the comments!

A storyteller,

a comedian—

no matter, the faded, worn cover

is only a disguise.

With every new page

a new secret is revealed,

a beautiful surprise

changes the plot.

Holding the reader

with a grip so strong,

as if to never let go

until the end.
