Book Lover’s Day

~~ by tkbrown ~~
Book Lover's Day shall be 'my day.'
I'll read a book, or maybe two --
and I won't stop until I'm through.
Then I'll reflect. What did it say?
Ill' take a walk down to the quay
before writing, sharing with you!
Book Lover's Day!

I've always loved books on display;
reading cheers me when I'm blue,
fills me up like a bowl of stew --
regardless of the day's genre.
Book Lover's Day
