Poem – Angels from Boston

Angels from Boston share their special gift;
They send us little packages, giving hearts a lift
Bringing the joys of freedom, currently out of reach;
And assisting minds everywhere with the lessons they can teach.

Poem – Book Angels

Truly the work of a bottomless heart
Giving “us” books, right from the start
A relentless effort, distinguishes you!
Absolute thanks, without further ado
The days may seem long and without end
But with these book I have a friend.
With each turn of a page, I am content
This little bit of freedom in which you have sent!

Poem – Help Me!

Help me reach out to others,
who are in need,
or perhaps a struggle.
Who likes to read,
and open their mind,
but are unfortunate,
and can’t buy books at this time.
Help me!

Poem – Insight of a Prisoner

In the life of a prisoner
Many obstacles come up
He wants to be a better
Person through the programs but
They just don’t exist
At the place where he was sent
So to God he gives his thanks
For the Prison Book Program
