Ipads, ereaders,and Kindles are nice
They give us adventures, thrills and advice
They fit neatly in our hands, bags and purses
tantalize us with their words and verses
Where are the libraries in brick and mortar?
What happened to library fees being just a quarter?
No matter to me, I hope they stay
for I love them so much more anyway
The feel of the pages, the edge of the spine
I relish adventures that are just all mine
I bring up the book real close to my face
The dust blows away without any trace
I love the smell of books both new and old
They are warm and mystic, not modern and cold
They fill up my senses and bring me such calm
Caressing my heart like a loving balm…
Dreaming of castles, yet getting strange looks….
in the Library
smelling Old Books
