Books as Enchanted Places: Photo Challenge #274

From Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie

I sought a place where I could find peace

Away from their awful naming and looks.

I found it not in a dark and gloomy place,

But between the pages of amazing books.

Oh, how enchanted I became as I read

Of peoples who resided in distance lands.

What relief to finally be left alone with

The wonders of the world in my hands.

In my books, I could finally behold lives

That kindled in my soul a pleasant hope.

I had to believe that joy was possible,

If with my difficult life I could cope.

In these latter years, I still seek escape

Into the delights of wonderful books.

They are still for me enchanted places

Where I get lost once I am hooked.
