Three by M.E./Rhymes of the Times
All it took-
Was reading that one recipe, out of Grandma’s cookbook.
18 hours, 38 minutes
One book after another-
Read to the little sister and or brother.
1 day, 18 hours
I saw you sunbathing on the lawn-
Reading my book, that I thought I’d lost, and was gone.
2 days, 21 hours
To plant a lifelong seed-
To teach both children and adults to read.
3 days, 21 hours
To buy a book, at the fair-
One that hasn’t been seen in a while, one that is rare.
4 days, 21 hours
To set the book, on the table-
And to get back to it, as fast as I am able.
5 days, 21 hours
To sit down, with some reading to do-
To follow the words, until the story is over and through.
6 days, 21 hours
