Needed for jotting notes, quotes, anecdotes—
Only designed and lined pads get my votes.
Take them with you, fitting neatly in totes.
Each holds a space for the purpose one denotes.
Bringing order that ensures the brain copes,
Offices use them for learning the ropes.
Often they house a place for inner hopes,
Keeping fresh times when an owner smiles, mopes.
Sacred albums of their thought and feeling—
About people, notebooks are revealing.
