Many people have ‘comfort foods’, but I have comfort books. They have helped me get through some difficult times.
The ‘Girl With a Pearl Earring’ watches over me from book and wall
I am reminded by ‘The Giver’ it is a blessing to receive as well
Edna in ‘The Awakening’ becomes a woman true to her inner soul
The ‘Poisonwood Bible’ does not preach but has a riveting tale to tell
Of Africa and American missionaries who become the real ones saved
And, in the end, ‘The Alchemist’ turns into Gold the tattered lives of all.
