Favorite Book

Vintage Words


I've read it six
times and still,
though dog-eared
and yellowed
of page, the corners
crumbling as I
lift it from the
shelf to read
again, I wonder
if I buy a new
edition, will
I enjoy
it half as







Author's Notes/Comments: 

The favorite book feels right in the palm, the paper just right beneath the fingers as I turn each aging page. Priceless!
