Two-for-Tuesday: 1. Ode to a _____ 2. _____ is for the birds.
Escape into another’s life,
perhaps a setting on foreign shores
or in another century
where speech and dress are unfamiliar
to the times in which we live.
A mystery might get juices flowing
in your brain, then you can follow clues.
A romance or adventure may suit you.
Enjoy a book on nature’s glories.
Curl up in either chair or bed,
and open up a brand new world.
At times it is difficult to stop,
like when you cannot wait to see
what happens at a story’s end.
You might, like me, feel torn because
the book is one you can’t let go.
If you close a book to watch TV,
you will find it is mostly for the birds.
