Sometimes when I wander by,
I see this stranger,
as snowflakes fly,
reading and not seeming to be in any danger

I catch a glimpse of his book,
it's so brown,
probably with a good hook,
and I gently sit down

He still doesn't look at me,
it's "The Book Thief",
I smile and let him be,
and begin to feel grief,

Because I know that book,
it's so sad,
when he finally gives me a look,
I know he doesn't find it bad

That's why I smile,
and he begins to talk,
we sit there for a while,
and later begin to walk

He with a long winter coat,
and the brown book in his hands,
me as I float,
above the snowy land

Sometimes reading,
can bring you together,
without arranging any meeting,
books are forever
Um, contest entry for the contest through your eyes phoenixleo.deviantart.com/jour…
not sure if I did it right... apparently, there's no option to submit it anymore....even if it said that it was extended until August 20th? :?

Partly this is true, but partly this is also just imagined. XD The stranger I saw didn't read the book thief, but the book was brown and it was winter and I sat down next to him. But we didn't really tlak or walk away, but I surely did feel a connection.

That was such a good book, and I feel like this poem does a good job of showing how books connect people

why thank you :) Poetry and me are so underrated haha :p I adore that book, it's so beautiful and so sad...I was so happy when I read that at least Max survived. One of those books that I could read again and again and it would always bring tears to my eyes. <3

Yes, that novel has made a great impression on me; I find myself thinking about it now and then, and everything that happens in it :)
