Wonderful books with beautiful and vast landscapes we can escape to.
Full of beauty and wonder,
Intrigue and blunder.
Expanding the imagination to new heights of awareness giving great insights.
They can give such beautiful and precious looks at so many a people.
Bring an understanding that you never had.
Expressions of love and deep wells of true passion.
Anger and hate that consume into sickness.
All ranges of emotion that drive people in their words and deeds no matter the spirit.
Wonderful books can take you to the most distant of lands,
full of many a splendor full of their own beauty no matter the layout.
Places to explore and treasures to find,
enriching the spirit and giving so many things in this world a way to define.
It's impossible to express all the magic within all the wonderful books.
Finding layers upon layers of the human soul and what it wonders.
Giving you thought on which to ponder,
why are people as they are perhaps we can now try to help and understand.
Endless adventures through many an endless volume.
Teaching you things endless amounts of true knowledge.
To share with your lovers and friends,
feeding each others souls with tales that you both can dream you are in.
Please to all the world expand your mind with these wonders.
Imagination is the key to our future.
So pick up all these wonderful books and take a break from all the stresses that haunt you.
