POEMS AND FLEETING THOUGHTS: OLD BOOKS

February 10, 2016 at 10:31 pm 2 comments

My old books,

Some two hundred years

Have little value

Except to me,

I wonder at their owners,

Readers long gone.

 

Gazing into a future

Unknown,

With my words

Hundreds of years gone

Cause the same ponder

Of a lover of books.

    Malvern Maven would have liked this one. Did you mean the word “with” to begin the final clause, or should it be “will” and end with a question mark?

    Oh…I love those old books too…and also wonder about those who held them before me.
