World Book Night Poem

Switch on your mind

And then see what you find

When you read every kind

Of a book.

Turn up the sound

Of the characters you’ve found

On the pages all around

As you look.

Shiver with some mystery,

Go back in time with history.

Slip into the life

Of the plot.

Dream up new predictions

With a work of science fiction,

Or unravel each whodunnit’s

Tangled knot.

Dystopia, utopia;

A book’s a cornucopia

Of things that people think,

Say and do.

So open up yourself

With the books on your shelf,

And you might just discover

A new you.
