Penny Picked Out A Book Nook

August 24, 2011

Penny picked out a book nook

W/ Big rooms in the back

In Vermont, & very modest for a place

For that  place there, to dare  there

Many  Vermont  mountain  homes

Have  Big front rooms

But not  books stores  in there

Booklovers  can leave the pelting rain

To search (again)  for that certain  tome

Or something impromptu

The hearth, this fireplace..

A dry,  warm  home

Fireplaces’  commonplace in Vermont, too


Tho’  tonight  nothing  lights  up our shop

More than  the proprietors’

Satisfied eyes or

The candles  we walk to the back.
