An Oath to Read

By Debra Angstead, NEA

I promise to read

each day and each night.

I know it’s the key

to growing up right.


I’ll read to myself.

I’ll read to a crowd.

It makes no difference

if silent or loud.


I’ll read at my desk,

at home and at school,

on my bean bag or bed,

by the fire or pool.


Each book that I read

Puts smarts in my head

‘cause brains grow more thoughts

the more they are fed.


Come rain or come shine,

Snow, wind, or sleet,

each day of the week,

reading’s a treat.


So I take this oath

to make reading my way

of feeding my brain

what it needs every day!


Thank you for your support during RHPS’ Love of Reading Week!
