Day 29 April P-A-D Poetic Asides prompt: Write an ode....not necessarily formal. I really hit a brick wall with this prompt, but I finally came up with this.
You take me to places I never thought to go,,
You take me away from the pain of today.
You bring me knowledge, helping me grow,
You give me more than I can ever repay.
You make me laugh at myself and others.
You give me the means to loose my sorrow.
You replace boredom with hours of pleasure.
You let me encounter many lovers,
You give me hope for a better tomorrow.
You, my books, are the pearls of my treasure.
