The Letters Lit: Official Unboxing, or should I say un-enveloping? And a poem inspired by my letter!

Happy New Year everyone!  One of my resolutions, is to write more and read more, so hopefully you will see an increase in my posts!  I am lucky to be completely spoiled this month, with lots of wonderful bookish goodies arriving through the mail, giving me inspiration for writing as well as new books to read.  On Sunday, you may have seen my post about unboxing my fabulous Bookish Box, and tonight I get to unbox (or should that be un-envelope?) my fabulous Letters Lit package.

letters lit 2If you are unfamiliar with The Letters Lit, they are a company which offer you book letters as opposed to boxes, thus giving you the experience of a book box subscription, at a fraction of the cost.  Every month, you receive a stunning wax sealed envelope, containing a selection of beautiful goodies themed around that month’s book.  This months book is ‘Season’ by Sarah Maclean, which I am very much looking forward to reading and reviewing (keep an eye out for the full review here on my blog).

Inside my package, I received some beautiful classic prints, which would look beautiful on any wall or notice board, some beautiful ribbon, some orange wedge post-it notes (as a list maker, this particular gift makes me very happy!), a heart shaped tea diffuser as well as a Twinings Earl grey tea bag (which I fully intend to sip as I read), a Letters Lit inspired page mark/paperclip and finally, my personal favourite, a bath tea bag (I wish I could add scent to my images, because wow does it smell divine).  The whole letter is just bursting with joy, and I love every little detail!  You can feel the care and consideration that goes into choosing each item and as a lover of all things vintage, I adore the classic vibes.

I have been following this company since their launch, and am so pleased to see them thriving and growing!  Subsequently, I was inspired to write a poem- I hope you like it!!

What joy to read,
to turn a page.
To fight and bleed,
explore an age.
To love or hate,
to shed a tear,
challenge fate
or face your fear

What joy to explore
a world unknown,
where dragons soar
and banshee moan.
Where ogres hide
amongst the fae
and vampire brides
escape the day.

What joy to share
a world in hand.
To cry and care
to understand.
To find yourself
through printed word,
where hearts they dwell
and lines are blurred.

What joy a book,
how knowledge spreads,
where wise men look
and brave ones tread.
But what of ends,
of final words?
When all is done?
That land preferred.

There is a way
to make it last
to steal away,
into the past.
A gift through door,
where book worms sit
waiting for
The letters lit.

Instructions simple,
there is but one:
Open seal with letter knife
A gift to bring a book to life.
