ATTENTION: Homework is the key to becoming a better reader. 
Practice makes perfect! Be sure you read every night, even

weekends and you will soon read so smoothly it won't be work

anymore. 

GIVE ME A BOOK

Give me a book
and long tall grass,
There will I look
as the hours pass.

To other places
I can see;
To other faces
strange to me.

In black and white
they fill my head
With men and women-
vanished, dead.

Of hope and fear,
of wish and need,
The world stands still,
I, breathless, read,

And in their history
I see
the untold mystery
of ME.
