I Am the Book

I just discovered a picture book of selected poems at my local library called I Am the Book by Lee Bennett Hopkins.  Check it out and find your favorite. Here is one of my mine.

Wonder Through the Pages by Karla Kuskin

So I picked out a book
on my own
from the shelf
and I started to read
on my own to myself.

And nonsense and knowledge
came tumbling out
whispering mysteries,
history's shout,
the wisdom of wizards,

the songs of the ages,
all wonders of wandering
wonderful pages.
