The Best Books

books beckon
titles tantalize
volumes of unknown capacity
to teach truth
set spines shivering
offer refuge
or simply delight

compact companions carry
worlds within words
brimming with inky life

passive potential waits
just open the cover
complete the circuit
unleash the current
and add a lasting light
to your soul

Yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom;
seek learning, even by study and also by faith.

Guest Poet: Rollo

My son read this at his class's Mother's Day Tea

My Mom

Planting fruit and vegetables, the way she raises my brothers and I,
Because that is who she is.
Happy when I was baptized.
Because that is who she is.
I see her making yummy dinner,
I hear her playing the piano, as lovely as a bird.
That is my mom and I love her.

by Rollo, age 8

Thanks, Rollo!
