Teach them to read,
let them imagine,
let their stories, enchant the world.

Here is my 2nd poem for this month, and Happy International Children’s Book Day to my fellow readers!
There you lay
amidst the crafted illusions
of your dreams
silent, on pages
no one, would ever read…

I trace the pages,
of that old hand-me-down book,
marked with ink stains of the past,
drifting into the memories of a different time.
“One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is to voyage through time.” ~ Carl Sagan
