a new book, in rhyming couplets, by Daniela Domenici

whenever I look

at a new book

I am often grasped at once,

at the very first glance;

it may turn out to be a flash in the pan

or it may prove to be the best out of ten.

Every book has its own, special appeal

and you have to be very sensitive to feel

that it is calling just you

because you are feeling blue

and it can relieve your sadness

and give you a little happiness…
