Lost in a Book.


I picked up a book,

I opened it,

In I strode.


Nobody can find me.

    Superb little shorty - I also love a book - better than any TV programme. I'm currently reading Vanity Fair but not up to Hardy standards.

      Thank you Michael, I am lost in the Poetry of Roger McGough at present, amazing poet.

        Oh Goldfinch you are a man after my own heart - I also love to hear reciting his work - I've got several of his books and am always dipping into them - also the same goes for John Hegley - a complete master of the whimsical.

          Hi Orchi, once I am in a book even my wife cannot find me.

          Lovely poem. Books can be dangerous things! Have you read "Inkheart" by Cornelia Funke.

          • Goldfinch60

            No I haven't, I have heard of it but not read it, mind you I have a list that seems to increase exponentially of the books I want to read.

            Thanks for your comment.

              Its a beautiull book. But then i am sure your list is full of equally beautiful books. Just avoid the film.

                Not a wasted word... This has been a main point to literary thinking all our lives.
