I know it’s presumptuous, and most likely, not easy.
It just might, in fact, be considered quite sleazy,
to expect you, dear Cupid, to share your day with another,
even though this worthy project has been sanctioned by your brother.
Was it Anteros, or Porthos? Of that, I’m not sure,
but the motive, I assure you, is altruistic and pure.
The idea’s to promote excitement about reading, and books,
to celebrate children, of which many are overlooked.
The aim is to gift a book, new, or lightly used,
to a boy, girl, or toddler (HERE are some that’re kid-approved).
One can donate a crateful, or leave one on a bench.
Just think of the thirst books have the power to quench!
In short, thank you, Cupid, for your blessing from above,
and for sharing with #bookgivingday, an other celebration of love.
Now that my poor rhyming skills have grabbed your attention, I recommend you visit STORY SNUG where Catherine Friess supplies you with a further list of suggestions on how to take part in this wonderful project, an interview with Emma Perry, the founder of Book Giving Day, and much more.
It’s just a couple of weeks until February 14th,
International Book Giving Day, 2019
❤ Won’t you join in on the fun? ❤
PLEASE SHARE THE CAMPAIGN
I LOVE your poems!!!
What a great idea! Shared it on Twitter.
And just so you know, your comment went through the first time. Better twice than not at all, if you ask me. Thanks for commenting! 🙂
I’m commenting again, though the comment is so paltry, the risk of double-commenting far outweighs the value of the comment but here goes: What a great idea! Shared it on Twitter.
No comment is too small or trivial, Ellen. Thanks soooo much for sharing!!
