Just me and my book

Just me and my book

I remember when
It was just me and my book
Alone in the den
Or next to a brook

That bubbled with water:
I bubbled with thought
Though the thought wasn’t mine
It was one that I bought

It was somebody else’s
Who wrote it all down
Then I went I bought it
When I was in town

But that’s not the case now
When I want to read
I’m never alone
There are things that I need

To see as they happen
I can’t let them wait:
If I missed an e-mail
Imagine my fate!

There’s tweeting and Reddit
And look! Instagram!
They always can find me
Wherever I am

So, sorry Lord Darcy,
Ayesha, and Toto
You can all take a break:
There’s a cat in this photo!

It’s reading a book!
And I just have to say
It looks very happy
Nothing gets in its way

The cat’s not interrupted
It just looks at the words
Or maybe the pictures:
They might be of birds

Ah yes, I remember
My life in the past
Just me and my book
Wow, that was a blast!

      Thanks for writing, Carol!

      Glad you liked it! I don’t actually personally feel that way…I like a lot of things going on and once, but that’s why I called it fiction. 🙂
