‘A Well Loved Book’ - A Poem


A Well Loved Book

A well loved book is the one that ages,

With note filled margins on folded pages.

The best sort of book is the one that contains,

Yellowing paper marked with tear stains.

When at the library, strive to discover,

The epic hidden by a dated cover.

Though that’s not to say that you should ignore,

The pristine editions they sell at the store.

Find the one destined to be destroyed by you,

For all well loved books were also once new.
