Timeworn Tome
By Jessica Marcarelli

Open cover
Weathered pages
Flowing words
In paragraphed cagesMusty scent
Of memories tells
More than words
Where dreams fell

Leather binding
Cracked and torn
Peeling back
Old and worn

Flowing script
Beckons look
To loving tatters
Of antique book

One Response to “Timeworn Tome”

  1. You’ve made me think…when we hold a book today, we need to think about all the memories surrounding books. We may not see them in the future.
