The Great Debate

The light flicks on, and what do I see?
A pile of books looking at me
Scan through the list to find want interests most
Surely there will be a simple clue to answer this post?

But no, what we have is this!

A Book of rhyming poetry
Fiction for both young and those aging
A modern inspirational autobiography
Atop a classic penned by Dale Carnegie

A Thousand Splendid Suns
And How to Heal my Heart and Life!
Compilers and guides to grow my mind
A magazine, too, thrown in on the side!

But from all of these
Fine books piled up and never quite read
My very favorite words must surely be
This simple poem gifted to me!

  1. Great poem! I chose poetry, too! Although, I think we all love to read, period! Else, why are we here?! 🙂 Love your books…I’m certain, however, that’s not all representative of your collection. And bookmarks? I think I keep the public library’s printing department in business!


    1. Thank you for reading my poetry! These are the books next to my bed! I have heaps of books but struggle to read them, now with the internet keeping me busy. I prefer printed books (hence the bookmarks!), rather than eBooks, maybe because I’m old school!
