Bookworm Award!

Sally over at Book Critiques tagged me for this Bookworm Award. Thanks so much!! I'm thrilled.

Here’s how it goes.

Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56.

Write out the fifth sentence, as well as two to five sentences following there.

Okay. The book nearest me (I'm in my office) is Blake's Poetry and Designs, edited by Mary Lynn Johnson and John E. Grant (it's a Norton Critical Edition). On page 56 is the poem "A Little Boy Lost."

Here are the first two stanzas:

"Nought loves another as itself
Nor venerates another so.
Nor is it possible to Thought
A greater than itself to know:

"And Father, how can I love you,
Or any of my brothers more?
I love you like the little bird
That picks up crumbs around the door."
Pass this on to five blogging friends.

The five people I tag are:

Alabama Book Worm
Kylee's 2009 Blog
Lous Pages
Nely at All About {n}
Tamara at Books by TJBaff

That is great! Thanks for the tag. I really needed something to blog about in the NaBloPoMo-challenge and this is just the thing I needed. Thanks for tagging me.
