My Books

My books are my treasure.
My love for them has no measure.
I hold them very close to my heart,
As in my life, they play a key part.
 
I love my books
And often give them
Tender, loving looks
As if perceiving gems!
 
About my books, I am very possessive.
About their upkeep, I am quite obsessive...
Borrowers I avoid with a look dismissive.
These traits of mine invite comments derisive.
 
A good book often inspires
To read more and more...
It also very often transpires
That it opens my mind’s door...
 
Books give me silent companionship.
They promise me lifelong friendship.
They are there for me in my times of need,
Ever ready to provide an enjoyable read!

Comment Thanks very much Nairji for your positive appreciation. The click of a mouse can never replace the feel of real book pages...

Comment May your love for books inspire the new generation to tread your path. The electronic age and internet have deprived them of the pleasure of possessing and reading books. Your poem captures the sweetness of what they are missing. Well-done!
