My house is old and has a room especially for books
The shelves tower up to to the roof
We have to get a ladder to reach the dusty covers at the top.
The light shines in through big windows and warms the simple carpeted floor
sometimes I lay in the sun
curled up in a ball on the floor , and just enjoy the warmth.
I remember the Christmas days and the bright colours of lights on the tree
and happy people smile and hug and thank each other
Presents and wrapping paper that remain all months of the year.
And the big brown chairs with squishy cushions
that I sink into, in a big embrace when I am sad
And i can rest my mind and body.
The books take me wherever I want to be
they can take me across the world
but my favourite place is right here
