To Read a Good Book

By Savannah Stephen

A word woven in, an inkblot here

Tales of some sins, some certain fears

A taste of the past and a glimpse of the future

From page one to the last imagination is nurtured

A knight bold and brave

A magical night

A story from the grave

A suspenseful fight

When you read a good book

Written by a master

You'll get a good look

Of happy ever after

I do sometimes wonder

If I couldn't read

And leave my being to blunder

Without the planted seeds

Nothing's worth more

Or worse for your health

If you can open the door

But can't enter yourself.
