Going to buy a Book

Going to buy a Book :

One day, grandfather gave my brother

and me some money.

“Go and buy books," he said.

We were both very happy.

We both love to read.

Should we go now?

Should we go later?

Should we go today?

Should we go tomorrow?

We decided to go right now.

Should we go to the big market?

Should we go to the small shop?

Should we go with somebody?

Should we go alone?

We decided to go to the small shop,

just the two of us.

We like the small bookshop.

It is small but it has many books. The man in the shop likes us.

He always helps us.

Should I buy a book with a lot of pictures?

Should I buy a book with a lot of stories?

Should I buy a thin book?

I could not decide.

We did not know which book to buy.

The man in the shop smiled at us.

“Relax, come with me," he said.

“These books are about animals.

Those are about machines.

Those over there are about wars.

Take what you want."

I picked some books.

My brother picked some books.

I sat on the floor.

He sat on the chair.

And we read and we read and we read.

It was very quiet.

There was no sound.

One hour passed.

Two hours passed.

Finally, we knew which books to buy.

The man in the bookshop smiled at us.

I got a fat book with many stories.

My brother got a big book with many pictures.

We ran home to our grandfather.

We climbed on his bed.

He put his arms around us and then

We read, and read, and read.

The word POETRY originates from a Greek word meaning TO MAKE. A poet is thus a maker and the poem something that is made or created. No single definition of poetry is possible but some characteristic features of poetry may be mentioned. Poetry has a musical quality with rhythm, pitch, metre and it may use figures of speech such as simile and metaphor. While quite a few poems in this selection are in traditional forms, the unit also includes modern poems that are free from formal restrictions.

Here is a list of English Poems written by various authors. Whatever the question is, poetry may be the answer. Writers say poetry provides them with comfort, a way to express themselves and the discipline of finding the essence with few words. Writing the poem (and finding just the right word) is the measure of success that the authors use. Really good poetry is instinctive. It’s who you are. It’s from the heart. You need to expose yourself to all kinds of poets and you may find your motivation and muse that way. Poetry gets to the core meaning. Poetry expands ideas.
