Sonnet – Books
I've always been so fascinated by books,
And since a child they have called me.
They contain magic no matter how they look.
In pursuit of knowledge they hold the key.
Books can be found-well- just about anywhere,
And we don't have to go lookin' far away.
Some are ordinary ones and some are rare!
Some give us wisdom and some take away!
Books may come in all kind of shapes and form,
But never be fooled by its cover, my friend!
There's so much to be learnt from a single book,
Just read one and put it to good intend!
There are many good books but some are bad;
And some great ones, can make hearts warm and glad!
