Lewis Eron

Rookie - 20 Points (July 26,1951 / Englewood, NJ)


Years end, books end, lives end
Stories do not end
They continue over the years
Unfolding and contracting
Reaching in and out
Characters enter and depart
And stories interwind

Sometimes stories are written
Sometimes stories are read
Reading stories creates new stories
Writing stories creates new readers
Telling stories creates new friends
New friends tell new stories

Stories do not stop for time
Stories do not stop for us
We can jump in or not
Whenever we wish
Or better yet
Bring a friend along
And show her
And how letters make words
And how words make sentences
And sentences, paragraphs
And paragraphs, chapters
And chapters, books
Which hold our stories
Which never end
So we get to live forever
Always young, always old
Sometimes wise
But always alive
In our stories.

Poem of the Day

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen
(Sure no Minister ever looked wiser),
And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
