A Simple Building
By Cheryl Moore
A simple building lacking in flare
Why am I so often drawn there?
Roaming its shelves, tasting its wares
A whole wide world available there
Journeys take me around the world
And when I no longer want to roam
Work on gardens, on business
On cooking and art
And English lit and Shakespeare
To keep me smart
Not to mention poetry
To suit the fussiest muse
So much to read, no time to lose.
Cheryl Moore grew up in the mid-west, went to college in San Francisco, then lived in foreign lands before returning and eventually settling in Sonoma County.
In recent years, she lives in a house and garden where deer nibble on roses, raccoons dine on fallen figs, and her bird feeders are busy.
A nearby river offers opportunities to observe waterfowl.
Seeing and writing about these miracles of nature are adventures in living.
