Books make good pets: children's poetry about books

  


 Com bé diu aquest poema -en anglès- de John Agard, els llibres són com a mascotes, però... no necessiten anar al veterinari, sols et necessiten a tu. Ells t'ajudaran a emprendre el vol fins on tu vullguis anar. Llegim, en estiu encara més.

Books make good pets
and don't need
going to the vet.

They're easier to care
than tropical parakeets.
They sometimes come in pairs
but prefer to breed in piles.
You don't have to feed
them sunflower seed
and just about anywhere
will serve as a nesting site.

From the perch of a shelf
they'll help you take flight
among the branches of yourself.
