"Learning to Read . . . "

Joe Nye from House Beautiful

Read
a poem by Ann Turner.


Do you remember
learning to read?


James Burrow's home by Michael Smith
from Elle Decor

That book full of squiggles
like ants, escaped.


House Beautiful

the teacher's big thumb
on the page,
your heart beating inside
afraid that all you'd ever see
was ants - - -


Mica Ertegun for Architectural Digest

Then a word popped out.


The home of Badgley Mischka
from Elle Decor

"See," and another, "cat,"
and my finger on teacher's
we read "I see cat."


I ran around the room -


from House Beautiful

so happy I saw words -


instead of ants.



I can remember the day I learned to read. It was also the day that a knew that I wanted a library in my home.

Cheers,
tartanscot
