Why I Read!

BOOK POWER

by Gwendolyn Brooks

 

BOOKS FEED AND CURE AND CHORTLE AND COLLIDE
 
In all this willful world
of thud and thump and thunder 
man’s relevance to books continues to declare. 


Books are meat and medicine 
and flame and flight and flower,
steel, stitch, and cloud and clout, 
and drumbeats in the air.
