On Sunday I helped H complete his poetry project for school. He wrote this fabulous poem and gave permission to share it here. We did a few cool photos to go with it as well.
Ode to a Book
Mysteries and adventures trapped inside
A thick body of paper
Waiting for the next reader
To enjoy the magic
Of delight, happiness, sadness and sorrow
Books are filled with imagination
Which the readers shall enjoy
Pages that turn with beauty
And curiosity for the next chapter
Story of any kind
Look through the library
Take your pick
Spine sometimes ripped
It doesn’t matter
Just pick it up
And enjoy By H, January 19, 2014
H: “Hey Finnegan, do you want to hear something from my H.G.Wells collection??”
Reading by the digital fireplace on his iPad. ♥ I love this kid!!
And… for the final reveal, here is how we did the cool buried in books photo:

Wow. What a talented boy. Lovely poem and LOVED the photos! Generally love your blog too! Keep it up! X
Thank you ♥
What a great poem – it really communicates his love of books and reading.Thanks for sharing – both of you.
You are most welcome!! So pleased to hear you enjoyed H’s poem!
That is an awesome poem! Really captures how I feel about books as well. (My latest “special interest” is getting all my books catalogued. With the proper ISBN, proper edition, and proper cover image, OF COURSE. Doesn’t do to have the wrong edition in my list. I’ve been at it for the past three weeks).
Thank you so much and… YAY!! for cataloging and organizing!!
Wow, H that is an awesome and very expressive poem! Books are the most wondrous and precious things and I’m so glad you enjoy them.
H says: “Thank you, Suvarna! Let’s hang out soon with our families!!”
Fantastic! I love reading. I just finished Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. I highly recommend it! It’s great that your son loves reading 🙂
Thank you, Steve. To be frank – it is an emerging interest that we are tying to nurture… Fingers crossed ❤ But H loves LOVES a good yarn… so I think his limitless desire for story will drive and encourage his reading interest.
