Happy International Children’s Book Day

2 APRIL is a very important date for writers of children ‘s books. So it is for me, a debut writer of children’s books.

Since 1967,on or about Hans Christian Anderson’s birthday ,2 April, International Children’s Book Day (ICBD) is celebrated to inspire the love of books in children and to call attention to children’s books.

Activities on this special day include writing competitions,announcements of books awards and events of children’s literature.

Parents are encouraged to read to their children at home, to stimulate their love of books for children, to encourage literacy and arouse the growth of their imagination.

My readers may call this a coincidence but I did receive by courier from Austin Macauley Publishers London the author’s copies of my newly released children’s book on the 2 April.

The Princess and the Crow was officially published on 29 March.

The Library

Books,magazines,newspapers,

All nicely stacked,waiting for readers,

The librarian,Mrs Jones,clad in a dress,

Welcomes me with a short address,

The Library is a quiet place,my dear,

The silence of books,we hear,

They wake up from their sleep,

When readers pick them up to read;

Mrs Jones knows my love for poetry books,

I go straight to them, with adept looks.

In the picture, the Wood Green Central Library, fifteen minutes ‘ walk from where we live in Wood Green or five minutes by W3,the bus.

We bought the house when our son started his university studies. The choice went for Wood Green mainly because of the library. We had inculcated the love for books in our children from an early age.

A library is quiet and the best place to relax with a book of our choice.The peaceful vibes fill our whole being with a need to acquire knowledge about things,people,countries, habits,customs and, much more that we can only find in books and nowhere else.

Readers of poetry books will find a copy of my book Soul Poetry Inspirational Poems,Verses and Quotes at the Wood Green Library 📚

Happy reading! Happy Spring Break 🍃🌸🍃🌱🌼🌱☘️🌷☘️

SPRING IS HERE

Spring break

Anita Bacha

With a magic splash of fresh paints,

Trees and plants,
Grim and dark,
With a spark,
Into emerald green, are changed,
Donned is the sky in glistening blue,
Splendid and meek, the golden sun,
Flirts jauntily,
Budding flowers kissing delicately,
Coaxing beauty in the fun;
As spring plays with colors,
With the melodious songs of birds,
With the waltz of cheery butterflies,
With the noble heart of man,
New hopes, like fresh petals unbolt,
Blossom gaily in the garden of life .

The Night Train of Nagaur

How to tell you,

What is more painful than a blast in the ear,

More painful than a suppressed tear,

More painful than the whistle of a train,I hear;

How to tell you,

Nothing is more painful than your leave,

Feigning that without you I can live;

How to tell you,

What is a beloved without the lover,

Or a lover without the beloved,

Or me without you, or you without me;

How to tell you,

What is the sky without a moon,

Or a moon without the sky,

Or me without you, or you without me.

How to tell you

How to tell you,

What is sweeter than a drop of honey,

Sweeter than a grain of sugar,

Sweeter than the juice of a strawberry;

How to tell you,

Nothing is sweeter than your tongue,

Melting like ice in my mouth;

How to tell you,

What is a flower without a bumble bee,

Or a bumble bee without a flower,

Or me without you, or you without me.
