Funny Poem Weekly, Issue #001 -- Bookworm Poem!
March 15, 2011

And welcome to the premiere issue of the Funny Poem Ezine! This poem was inspired by my trip to my local library. I love the hushed sound, the smell of the books, the magazines, as well as the panoramic view out the second story window. A little bit of noodling led to the point of view of a bookworm. Please enjoy!

For more funny poems on an educational theme, go to my Funny School Poems or for just plain fun, go to my Funny Poems page.

For those of your with text-only e-mail, here is the text of the poem. (Sorry, for the lack of an illustration in text only!)

If I were just a bookworm,
then I'd spend my time on pages
reading all the printed words
by humorists and sages.

I'd take my nap upon the stacks
and rest upon a letter,
and just the closeness of the words
would make me feel much better.

When I'd awake, wide-eyed, refreshed
with all the rest I need,
I'd slither off straight down the page
because I love to read.
