TCS: Poems for Read Across America Day

Flowers For Socrates

. .Good Morning!


Welcome to The Coffee Shop, just for you early risers
on Monday mornings. This is an Open Thread forum,
so if you have an off-topic opinion burning a hole in
your brainpan, feel free to add a comment.


The world was a terrible place, cruel, pitiless, dark
as a bad dream. Not a good place to live. Only in books
could you find pity, comfort, happiness – and love.
Books loved anyone who opened them, they gave
you security and friendship and didn’t ask anything
in return; they never went away, never, not even
when you treated them badly.

― Cornelia Funke, from Inkheart
