Time conveyed one to another

Volumes built upon each other

Leather bound illuminated stacks

Timely covers, spiny backs

Rag pressed, vellum crisp

Gilt edges awe with flourish

Foxed, toned, molded or torn

Paper sheathed, all’s to cherish

Labeled leaf beckon turns

Fiction fine, truth burns

Chapter’s start, ends remain

Hours lost, worlds to gain

Drafts waft, hearts flutter

Time’s conveyed one to another
