Another world can be found in a book,
Another world can be found if you look
Between the soft, crisp pages.
A journey that takes us through the ages.
Many places far and near,
Much to learn, so turn your ear.
See the emotions, catch them flying.
Some see us laugh, while some leave us crying.
Feel the passion, anger, rage;
As potent as a tiger caged
Feel the rush, the thrill.
It leaves me gasping still.
Feel the love that burns the soul.
Ware, for if it leaves, it leaves a hole.
Sense the anguish, feel the joy,
An opportunity for any girl or boy
So find a good book, sit down and read.
If you’re like me, you will feel that need.
