... For Our Soul To Nurture

They are friendly, entertaining, mysterious,
Addressing different themes, issues,
Telling us diverse life stories
Much more exciting than news.

We travel through their pages
Across countries of different ages,
Whose traditions, history, and culture
Are therein for our soul to nurture.

We look at them with respect,
Filling our heart with delight
Enjoying how the characters interact
Within the plot the author thinks is right.
