Teens & YA @ BPL

Teen Poetry!

One of the Reading Log challenges for teens is to write a poem! Here is one by Julia:


When You Open a Book

When you open a book,

Opportunity arises.

Opportunity of adventure,


Or a relaxing day.


When you open a book,

Chance arises,

Change of winning,


Or being content in between.


When you open a book,

Decisions arise.

Decisions of what to eat,


Or how to fix the problem.


Opportunity, chance, & decisions,

All when you open a book.




Thank you for sharing your poem with us, Julia!
