Long ago it seems,

When we were full of dreams,

When a day of break,

Would always keep me awake.


        With my friends and companions,

        The characters of Enid Blyton's.

        The Famous Five,

        And the Find Outers with their Dog.


And Nancy Drew,

With her mysteries anew,

A boyfriend like Ned,

So handsome and kindred,

Every girl's dream,

To come true.


        Even the comics,

        Like Disney Today,

        And Chacha Chawdhary,

        With Tintin a galore,

        Would keep me awake at nights,

        With thoughts to explore.


Then came P.G. Wodehouse,

With Jeeves and Wooster,

The team which would send us,

Smiling and caught unawares,

Lord Emsworth with his pig,

And Sir Galahad dandy as ever.


        How can I forget Agatha Christie,

        And her bundle of mysteries,

        With Miss Marple sweet as ever,

        And Poirot proud ever so,

        With Tommy and Tuppence,

         And their mysteries and suspense.


But what happened now????

Nobody ever talks of them,

Nobody bothers taking a look at them,

The smell of my childhood,

Given way to Kindle,

And apps a plenty.


         I like to read them too,

         But the smell of books,

         And feel of the pages too,

         In my hands still,

         Makes me yearn for the old days,

         Of books and rain,

         When can I have them back? 

         I wonder time and again!!!!!!
