House of books
Books on the windowsill,
books behind doors,
books under the stairs,
books on bedroom floors,
books in the shed,
and on the computer,
books set in the past, the present, the future.
Books on law,
books on art,
books on how to write a book if you don't know where to start.
Books with pages worn and bindings frayed,
books with markers left at the very first page.
Fiction, non-fiction, picture books and poetry, more books than clothing, shoes and hosiery.
My love of words expressed through purchase,
cost me a fortune but every one is worth it.
