I am from the shining land of Star dust Equipped with wings of fire I tie my hair with a string of stars And let it down sometimes Inspite of binding prejudices And shackles of patriarchy I am made of strong roots But stronger wings
A soul with countless poetries That tries to paint endless rainbows On grey skies and cloudless nights Reflecting a kaleidoscope of thoughts Unhindered and unbridled Unmasking the Blue Devils of winter
And shining with my own light Pole star shining bright

BRING ON THE BOOKS! by Carolyn Glackin A world without books?! Mon amie! Sacré bleu! What a terrible thought! May it never come true! Not one book to hold, nor one page to turn No collection of writings from which we could learn No trips to the bookstore, nor to the library Oh perish the thought, for it's much, much too dreary! Call me old fashioned, I won't mind if you do But books are my preference, whether old or brand new There's a quaintness about them I just can't overlook And you'll never get that From a digital book Their endearing and comforting, and fondly familiar And to tell it quite clear, all this tech stuff's peculiar! So a book's what I'll choose, to have and to hold From this day forth, 'til I grow very old Convenience is nice, and much of it's free But regardless of that, I choose the real thing for me! I can bring a warm blanket, hide away in some nook With hot coffee, a cat (or two), and me with my book! Copyright Carolyn Glackin 3/21/2021
