Poetry Friday: A Little Book

It is a perfect, blue-sky beautiful September day today, and it is my last tiny scrap of summer before school begins on Tuesday. So, the days are neither long nor gray, but I agree completely with the sentiment of this little poem. Today is going to be a reading day.

A Little Book – Ruth Lilly

I like to read a
Little book
When days are
Long and gray.
Just in a cozy
Little nook,
And there I know
I’ll stay!
To read the covers all way through
I like a little book,
Don’t you?
