  • "Read"

    There was a time when I hated to read,
    my mind would wander with blinding speed.
    Assignments were torture - a poke in the eye,
    exception for me that Guy in the Rye.
    Dreaded the books required to pass,
    and foolish reports as part of the class.
    Took many a night and morning sun,
    to pick up a book and read it for fun.
    Retired am I and now have the time,
    to read words of fiction from lovers to crime.
    Can stop when I want or just fall to sleep,
    then start up again and not miss a beat.
    The best part of it all - my dues have been paid,
    I can read what I want and not for a Grade.

        This was light-hearted and fun ! I myself was never fond of being "forced" to read. Just one question however, in the next to the last line, you wrote "The best part it all-" was that meant to be [ best part of it all ] ?
