My Collection Of Books - Poem by Raja Basu

It is my most precious possession, my collection of books
It is my oxygen, no matter how much insignificant it looks.

Reading has been my most favourite habit, since when I was a kid
A good book in my hand, and there is nothing else that I need.

My books are my life, and my collection (of books) my pride
I have books of all types, from Enid Blyton to Oscar Wilde.

I love to get lost among my books, whenever I have leisure
Spending time with my beloved books is my life’s greatest pleasure.

    I am sure you will never feel alone...
    As you are always surrounded by books
    No matter, old or new known or unknow...
