Bibliophile

Spread the love

reading_in_the_garden-974697

Lo! thus in tranquil hush and peace of rose garden;
her thoughts and desires bloomed beneath the sun.
She read as though with means to slip in another’s
skin, voice and soul; devouring cherry cobbler pies
and currant wine.”Oh weave round the heart thine
ligature and tie; observe the threads of life and see
them spin robust and fine.”

Beguiled with charm of books beneath the sun and
shade; lost amid the labyrinth that her passion had
made. “I feel not need for nature’s flowers nor do I
miss its balmy showers. I tread thru passage of lore
in books; hear the sound of distant age.” Oh withal
unknown facesΒ and forgotten places; heart unaware
long lost in pages.

Thus luminous stars lit up at night;
Lo! summoned by her fresh delight.

    Wonderfully poetic description of all us bibliophiles. I got away from reading as much over the last few years and am just getting back to it again this year in earnest. I’d forgotten how much I loved to get lost in a book.

  2. Glenn Buttkus says:

    You have described my wife, who is constantly reading books she’s an itinerant teacher, so listens to “talking books” * “books on tape”. When we take road trips, we listen to books. That’s how I got hooked by the Harry Potter series. The down side is, she often can’t remember book titles or authors; sensory overload, I guess.

    I have so many times identified so strongly with characters in books that I’ve read. Truly we can get lost in our reading of a well written story. You put it so romantically, Sanaa!

  4. Lillian says:

    This is wonderful. I absolutely adore your way with words.
    And yes — I too enjoy slipping into the skin of a book. Another world. But I must say, I never look like this beautiful photo — more often than not I’m in a bathrobe curled up with a book! πŸ™‚
    Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

    Enchanting! Books whether literature or not have always an escape from our mundane world to live life to the fullest in words. I have been addicted for many years!

    Beautiful description of book lovers and books. I’m happiest when I have several unread books waiting for me on my shelf while I am reading another one.

    Wow, Sanaa, you’ve perfectly captured the addiction to books, as well as the power of said books to arrest us and virtually incarcerate us in the worlds they create.
