Remembrance of Books Past

There’s a lot of truth that we learned in the fairytales and other children’s stories of our yester-years isn’t there?  When we read these classics again, there is still a lot to learn from them.

Once Upon A Fairy Tale - Tales Well Traveled

Remembrance of Books Past
by Michael Romani

The pastel spines of the childhood shelf
Contain the words that became myself
Books and words that my mother first read
Remain those formative in my head

The morals and values of my life
The quietude of moments between strife
And when I revisit them in re-discovery
I find my lifetime basking in their memory

And now, I pass these on to my children
To treasure and blend into forming them
As stepping stones to who they'll be
Finding their own paths of self discovery

Between reading again and this continuity
I find we are blessed by this opportunity
To share across our generations
These words we have and hold with much veneration
