Quietly keeping cold evening company,
Curled up with a volume or a new collection,
How often do readers stop to view the
Laminated covers, or the fraying corners
How many colors and pictures have
Came adjacent to line after line of
Oh Poems, everything about you
Warms my heart; your pretty evening dress,
The firm binding that keeps your insides
Cozy and complacent, thank you, oh thank you.
I am comfortable tonight. My eyes are light,
My mind is warmed, volume after volume of
verse, I have adorned.
