A Poesy Crevice

"A Poesy Crevice" is will be a weekly feature on this blog. I've posted a couple and have had a fair amount of comments.

In "A Poesy Crevice" post I will give a poem, quote, verse, maybe a phrase from a book, or maybe like today I'll ask a question about what the love of reading means to you? 

I love quotes, poems, phrases, words, strong and or eccentric verbs, colloquialisms, language, figures of speech, expression, rhyme, rhetoric, prose, reading aloud, cadence, the printed word, literacy, strong characters whether good or bad, fluency, a plot that unfolds with surprises, some kind of closure at the end of a story, and dimensional characters.

What do you love about reading?
Express how you feel about the written word?
