There is nothing like the written word
to ease life's daily worries
its gentle carress lulls your mind
and gives no need to hurry
It can lift you from the darkest mood
and let your spirits fly
It opens the imagination
and makes you laugh when you could cry
The saddest thing that you can see
is a book that's never opened
for a book is like a river wild
adventure's always 'round the bend.
