Poem A Day #6- For my students…

The Treasure of Books…

For my students. Because I want you to find the treasure.



A picture, an image, a splash of color
Subtlely alluding to what lies inside.
No special key or password needed.
Simply open it up and there they await you:
Words, words, words.
Princesses and flying carpets.
Princes and dueling swords.
History. The future. An alternate reality.
A triumphant hero. A grieving mother.
Faraway lands and ever present realities.
Words, words, words.
Innocuous and meaningless.
Poignant and thought-provoking.
A thousand words, a thousand thoughts,
A thousand possibilities.
