Earlier Times


Musty old book found
on a seldom explored shelf
leaking out the smell
of earlier times
when adventure was
close at hand.

The book emitted
a special odor
of wisdom mixed with
tender emotions offering
an entrance to
times of long ago.

I entered the mystery
of this book and met
its people—heroes and villains
and for a few hours
shared the lives of
all within this lovely
forgotten era.
