personal poem# 15

our folks bought us the world book
an impressive row of blue volumes
alphabetized holding all the wisdom
of the world we had other books (we
were a bookish family) but this classy
compendium intrigued us my sister
and I decided we’d read them straight
through we were maybe eight and
ten I soon realized the enormity the
impossibility of the task – gave it up
thence using the set as encyclopedias
should be used but I’ve never forgot
the beginning entries so useful for
crosswords scrabble trivia bouts:
aardvark and aardwolf
