OLD BOOKSTORE

Why don’t we have these anymore?

Books covering ceiling to floor.

Happiness between the binding.

What a perfect and safe finding.

Read in the candlelight.

Nothing can be as right.

Pictures and words before my eyes.

Reading about truth and some lies.

You’ll definitely find me hiding.

The tall shelves of books I’ll be minding.

        The one I like to explore is the Strand in NYC – not so picturesque but lots of books.

        I’ve heard of that one. I must check it out the next time I’m in the city. I always end up in Macys. I feel like I grew up in that store.

        14th street. Close to the 8th avenue subway stop.

        That’s a nice neighborhood. My brother had an apartment there years ago.

    I would love to sit in that room and bask in the ambience.
