Once there was a booklover

October knew, of course, that the actions of turning a page, of ending a chapter or of shutting a book, did not end a tale.

Having admitted that, he was also avow that happy endings were never difficult to find: “It is simply a matter,” he explained to April, “of finding a sunning place in a garden, where the light is golden and the grass is soft, somewhere to rest, stop reading, and be content.”–G.K. Chesterton (The Man who was October)

Inspired by the above excerpt from Mr. G.K. Chesterton’s The Man who was October, here I was able to come up with a poem for me and for all the booklovers out there.

I.

Once there was a girl

Amazed by the beauty of letters

She liked to put those letters together

By those letters she created beautiful words.

II.

She was introduced far too much

By words became her life

Not knowing that words when combined

Becomes meaningful sentences  at hand.

III.

Freedom is what sentences gave her

She was able to connect to people

She used sentences freely

Alas! came idealistic paragraphs.

IV.

And so her story goes,

She discovered a magical world

Where letters, words, sentences and paragraphs lived

And there unveiled the thing called book.

V.

Books became her life

For every words she repeated by heart

She was never alone from then on

For books became her wonderful companion.

VI.

Laugh, cry, happy or sad,

All emotions she had already experienced

For books gave her the ticket to unknown feelings

A random set of emotions she used to hide before.

VII.

Now, she had visited hilarious places

For books gave her free rides to it.

With it, she have became a princess

Falling deeply in love with her prince.

VII.

This is a story about a girl

Who loved magnificent words

But now committing the promise she made

To read and love books until her last breathe.

I am a booklover!
