A Timeless Writers Heart

IMG_0134 - copy 01

****

The cover of a book
can display more fiction
than the words on the actual page
And beginnings
and endings
can beg the reader to buy
But the books
I never fall out of love with
their covers often bland
are to be
acquired
or found
by chance of being there
just a lucky day

.

My mind quivers
eager with anticipation
at what my eyes will see
between the musty ancient pages
as my fingers stroke the aged and tatty skin
of a book from long ago

.

Authors I’ve not heard of
but were men of great fame
in their literary day
Publications
declared to be written ‘By A Lady’
a nameless novelist
a woman
quietly competing
in a man’s world of books
All their words folded into paper
a hundred years or more
the print
waiting
to be read
or spoken
just one more time

.

And now I
this woman of ebook future
and computer literate age
will absorb
the declaration
the knowledge
and the beauty
of a timeless writers heart
