Books Made Of Paper
A paper book is a wondrous thing
No batteries are needed
You can shelve it for a hundred years
Then take it down and read it.
You can read it in the bath tub
You can read it on the train
You can read it when the sun is bright
You can read it in the rain.
It needs no wires or charging
No cables and no socket
It’s soft and flexible enough
To stuff it in your pocket!
You can scribble in the margins
From the first page to the end.
You can write a message in the front
And give it to a friend.
So cast away your Kindle
For technology moves on
While the software gets corrupted
The paper book lives on.
