Operatic Tomes

Forgotten, worn, loved and torn
operatic tomes rest upon the maestros shelf
breathlessly waiting for their return performance,

and aged voices will be heard once more

For more wonderful books please visit Theme Thursday.


  1. Mmmm...nice. Yes, sometimes those books we have loved pine away on the shelf. Isn't it great that they can be rediscovered? I love the positive path you have chosen in your poem.

  2. Delightful! And I love you clever use of "breathlessly."

  3. When I zoomed in on the titles, it wrote itself or should I say the pen sang ;) Thank you Janice and Madeleine.

  4. My favorite books are like dear friends. Nice theme thursday.

  5. Thank you Elise, Isn't it true about books being dear friends.


Don't be shy. I know you've popped by :)
