Choose A Book

Choose A Book

 

Choose a book, put down the gun
A book, you’ll find, is much more fun
A fool can shoot and nothing’s gained
But if he reads, his mind is trained

So much to learn, there’s always more
A reader you could never bore
For life’s alive to such a mind
And joy is gleaned from each new find

A saga or a mystery
Romance or perhaps some history
A gentle yarn or twisted tale
The choice is yours, just find the sale

Such little cost for treasures great
A friend that all its life could wait
Please take the time, just have a look
Adventures thrive, so choose a book

Read and Learn

Read and Learn

 

With every book you’ll read and learn
Your soul may soar or it may burn
The pains and pleasures of life’s ride
No longer from our minds may hide

The stories are of human folk
Reminding us life’s not a joke
And all are part of one great mass
Each day things change and come to pass

So where then is your mind today?
A place of work or state of play?
As seeds are planted on the land
Your dreams and visions now are planned

Then let’s dream peace and grand designs
Your mind each picture now refines
And searching is your inner soul
To reach that long-expected goal

The outward world will try to take
Each blissful dream once you’re awake
But it will fail, for deep we yearn
And more each day we read and learn
