Wild Woman on Books

[image from dennyreed.com]

As Wild Woman
shelves
the one thousandth book
and surveys
the result
with satisfaction,
a little
questions forms:

How many books
does Wild Woman
really need?

"Just the one
she's reading
now."

However,
between
the covers
of every
single
one,
lies a
new adventure,
just waiting
to be
embarked upon,
or an old friend,
waiting to be
revisited.

Wild Woman
is
addicted
to
opening
the covers
and
being taken
on
a pilgrimage.

She
will
not
stop
until
her
journey's
end.

Kids, I am being very patient, but the people in my world are Much Too Busy to fix what is wrong with my email program. I have not been able to receive or send emails since Tuesday morning. I apologize to those of you who have been trying to reach me, and also to those of you I need to reach for interviews etc.

Wild Woman says, "Argh!" Bear with me.

  1. Oh, I so sympathize, Sherry! I've been out of commission all week, too, but my computer is deigning to work today so I'll squeeze in some visiting while I can!

    I love this poem...there's definitely no such thing as too many books....:)
