Books on the bookshelves
And stacked on the floor
Books kept in baskets
And propped by the door
Books in neat piles
And in disarray
Books tucked in closets
And books on display
Books filling crannies
And books packed in nooks
Books massed in windows
And mounded in crooks
And bookstores invite
But book-filled rooms welcome
Us back home at night! — L.R. Knost (via wordpainting)
