Love Of Words - Poem by Della Perry

You had gone without the knowledge
I owe it to you
I never had chance to give thanks
The love of words
Power of the book
You enticed me to it all
Sadly you passed on
I'll never get to tell
Just how much I actually do love those words
Just how right you were
Taking me to the library
Joining in my childish glee
Reading to me on your knee
I'll love you forever Aunty
I'll always think of thee.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

For my Aunty Marjorie who loved to read and took me to the library on Saturdays, she was so kind and clever. Cancer took her from me at 18, she was only 54.
