POETRY from Reflections of a Mississippi Maganolia

In honor of our Family Literacy theme, Patricia shared this poem from her book, Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia


Reading is fundamental,
That's what they always say;
Without it, I couldn't even imagine,
Wanting to start my day.
My mother's love of reading,
Was passed down straight to me;
And wherever it is that I am,
Some book with me, you'll see.
In my purse or under my arm,
Or maybe in my car;
I'm not so sure where the book would be,
But it couldn't be very far.
My mother says she remembers,
Books and papers 'round her mothers bed;
Where she would spend the whole long day,
With knowledge being fed.
I love to read all kinds of things,
I never get enough;
I guess, I could live without my books,
But, boy, it would be tough.
