A Poem

One of our booksellers in our Highlands Ranch location wrote a poem for the holiday season!

'Twas the month before Christmas
and all through the store
were lots of fine books
that one couldn't ignore

The hard covers were stacked,
so high that they swayed.
And shiny paperbacks stood
in their cases displayed

Cards, lights, and calendars ranked
case after case
and shelf upon shelf of gift-stuff
fills the space.

And each shopper's list flutters
in the common refrain:
One for mom, dad, and Johnnie
another for Jane.

So, questions ring telephones
like jingling bells
Soaps, teas, and candles
bring Holiday smells

The thoughts of each loved one,
of family and friends,
at gatherings and dinners
before the year ends

For each a bright package
in ribbon and bow
Good books to curl up with
let the winter storms blow...

--Mark L.

What a great poem! It is fun and really gives the reader the feel of being in the store.
