“A Book” – A Poem by Beth Ann Cangelosi

My 10-year-old daughter Beth Ann wrote a poem this morning. It perfectly describes her love for sneaking off to a quiet corner to read – she’s a lot like her mommy and daddy…

A BOOK
by Beth Ann Cangelosi

Once I read a book,
and that book I took
from a bookshelf,
and nobody else.

I like to read,
but not when somebody else
reads to me.
I like to read by myself,
with nobody else.

When that book ends,
I might read it with a friend,
or I might read it by myself,
with nobody else.
