Whenever I read an amazing book, one thing that always crosses my mind is its sheer brilliance. The fact that the author could come up with such an exceptional story always leaves me perplexed, in a good way!

I always feel that the surge of emotions is best expressed through writing.

So if you ask me, books are the best thing that could ever have happened. As a kid I always liked reading, I still do. Chacha Chowdhry, Champak, Tinkle, I loved them all. But I fell in love with books only after I read Enid Blyton, Harry Potter, Agatha Christie, Wodehouse, Roald Dahl, etc.

The magic that these authors create, it simply leaves one spell bound. I have tried explaining how much I love their books numerous times, but I always fail.

Going through my old stuff recently, I found this poem on my favourite authors that I wrote in my 8th grade I think. It is silly, the rhyming could have been better, but it is very close to my heart. It explains why I love these authors and why they will always be a very important part of my growing up. I named the poem ‘WONDERS’, and I think I got at least one thing right! Well anyway it goes like this

Apart from the Seven Wonders of the World,

There are some others in this world,

Like the authors whose books we read,

Not only to find pleasure in need,

But they also teach us good deeds.

The best ones which I like are

J.K. Rowling, Agatha Christie, Enid Blyton and rest

P.G.Wodehouse is not far,

But I have read only one of his book which is best.

Harry Potter is now-a-days famous everywhere,

Wherever you go, you hear the plaudits being heaped on Rowling everywhere.

She really is a marvel because,

She spreads magic everywhere.

Agatha’s Hercule Poirot is marvellous,

Noticing even the slightest thing is his base,

His brain power and observation is great,

Which helps him to solve his case.

Enid Blyton’s Famous Five is fabulous,

St. Clare’s and Malory towers are not to be left.

Mystery and Secret Seven are fantastic,

But the Naughtiest Girl beats the best.

Wodehouse’s The Inimitable Jeeves is good,

Where Jeeves a butler, is really a paragon,

Jeeves also prepares delicious food,

And lucky is Bertie Wooster to have such a cook.

I bid adieu to the reader,

And I hope the reader enjoyed my poem,

Though it is a very boring one,

But to wait for the next one is done.

I know the poem is really silly, but am sure lot of you might be able to get what I felt back then. The admiration, the adoration for these authors will always persist however old I grow, however successful I become in life.
