I Read a Book (not a Kindle) Today........
Once there were great buildings with rows and rows of shelves, stuffed with thousands of Hard Covers.
The beach seemed to demand that I leave the Android & Kindle at home and bring a REAL BOOK .
Thoughts that came to mind while communing with a real book at Sand Pond on Cape Cod on a cloudy Spring day.............
I read a book today.
Its pages were of paper,
and the words were printed with ink.
It was heavy and old
and came from a dark, dusty place
something like a museum I think.
Some page corners were folded over,
others had notes that prior readers penned.
The old hard cover volume felt like a friend.
A poet long ago mused that he would never see
any poem or any tome, as lovely as a tree.
Today; I say that I shall never read or see
any Kindle book as great as the book MADE FROM a tree.
