Transcript of I Love the Look of Words

Maya Angelou I Love the Look of Words Popcorn leaps, popping from the floor
of a hot black skillet
and into my mouth.
Black words leap,
snapping from the white
page. Rushing into my eyes. Sliding
into my brain which gobbles them
the way my tongue and teeth
chomp the buttered popcorn.

When I have stopped reading,
ideas from the words stay stuck
in my mind, like the sweet
smell of butter perfuming my
fingers long after the popcorn
is finished.

I love the book and the look of words
the weight of ideas that popped into my mind
I love the tracks
Of new thinking in my mind. Summary Theme Reading is more than just looking at words. -Ideas
-Stories
-Images
-Opinions Angelou compares:

the way my tongue and teeth
chomp the buttered popcorn." how do these things enter our bodies? *Reading is more than just looking at words.* How much have words given to you? Reading influences everything we do in our lives. Popcorn leaps, popping from the floor
