Book Poetry and Quotes

Updated on July 15, 2015

Let these quotes and poems inspire you to dive into a good book!

Reading is my favorite hobby. I love to escape inside the adventures, romance, and mystery that surround the characters of a novel. I enjoy staying up late reading, because I just can't wait to see what happens next. I'm always sad yet satisfied when I finish another well-written work of fiction. Peruse these classic and modern quotes about books and soon you'll be falling in love with reading yourself!


Open a Book: A Poem

Open a book and take a look,

To find endless worlds abound,

Knights, pirates, and aliens,

Come alive without a sound.

The words conspire to inspire,

I see them gather on weathered pages,

Once upon a time is where it all begins,

Present fades as time stops for all ages.

All journeys end after twisted paths bend,

Usually happily ever after meets you there,

The turning stops and all paper must rest,

Just close the book and quietly stare.


Enchanting Words: A Poem

All the reading and writing,

Oh, the words are biting,

Searing my soul like an iron brand,

Transporting me to a dreamy, imaginary land,

Rhythmic melodies plague my soul,

Change my view and make me whole,

Quiet whispers, a longing glance,

Can't paint pictures like words meant to entrance,

Stars collide and flowers bloom,

Hearts tell lies, while lovers assume,

Lofty goals and broken dreams,

But masterpieces burst through hidden seams,

Words can calm, communicate and carry,

Through a lowly world, full of souls made weary.
