A Bookmark’s Promise

24 01 2012

I was in my AP Human Geography class today and I was telling my friends about this blog and one of them asked me what I like to write about and I answered, being intentionally ambiguous”Everything” She, like me, is an avid reader and promptly pulled out the bookmark in her copy of “The Good Earth” and told me to write a poem about it.  I am not kidding and this poem is the result.

Best.Bookmark.Ever

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep me near and I will mark

Your way through any adventure

On which you choose to embark

I’ll be your milestone

And never let you lose your place

Once I’m between pages

I’ll catch your tears

Or share your laugh

And be there for every book, front to back

Just keep me near

And do not fear

I will always keep your place

Held tight by a crisp, papery embrace

Again, beautiful. You should print that on bookmarks as a perfect accompaniment.

And thanks for the pic. I just ordered one for my girl, who is a Wizard of Oz fan and an avid reader.

Don’t you feel the magic
In the tips of every digit
As you illustrate your talent
In a thousand perfect ways?

Don’t you feel the blessing
Of the rhymes you are confessing
When you strike a pose and
Write a line and blow us all away?

😉

Always so awesome. Great stuff, Andrea!

Yes, it courses through me
Those winds that knock you down
With words and thoughts profound
Though I only feel it after
You praise me with your words

I’m always sad when on tears…
I used to have one that I made out of a piece of notebook paper. I would write the date I started a book, title/author, and the date I finished on it. I probably went through about seventy books with that one bookmark, eventually I ran out of writing room.
