Being fond of books...

Being fond of books...

A Poem by Emaan Zahra Ijaz

I love learning and researching and always head to the library in my spare time. this piece is to express my love of learning through books.


Oh brainy books, you inspire me to write.
How I love the way your pages flip,
Invading my mind day and through the night,
Always dreaming about the keen endings

Let me compare you to a third party?
You are more edgy, glorious and strange.
Cold frost nips the robins of December,
And wintertime is when I, because of you, change

How do I love you? Let me count the ways.
I love your menacing charm, style and grace.
Thinking of your pleasant style fills my days.
My love for you is the tender , oh yes it is.

Now I must away with a sublime heart,
Remember my green words whilst we're apart.

i like this, especially towards the end when we almost hear Hamlet..."let's away"

but this time Ophelia's love is returned as in this speaker's heartthrob...
lots of emotion comes across...
