My most popular poem on Instagram this week was “The Miracle of Reading”

Those who give
are never alone
And she had given over
two great gifts:
her attention
and her imagination
the great present
of her presence.

Those who receive
are never alone
and she had opened wide
inside
and gone to live
for a time
between the pages
of a book.

Treasured treasuring.
The miracle of reading.
