delicate passion

expression of self

frozen in time

in the book on the shelf

lifting it down

with reverence and trust

with gentle breath

blow off the dust

there find the truths

and half truths of ages

in the poet's words

on the poet's pages

Excellent....I loved this, very well written and one all of us as poets can relate to.

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!

I liked this a lot. My only dismay was its brevity. I'd like to have read more Scribe.

As a collector of old books I love this one. Many a day I rearrange my books...dust them.. touch them..open them lovingly...I have an old, old book of poems with wonderful old drawings in it. Excuse me while I go look at them again.
