THE LIVELY LIBRARY by Ineke

My library is well-grounded,

abounding with prose and verse.

 

It is written in my diary

that I’m due at the local library

to return items on loan.

I roam alone, surrounded by clones,

to track down books, by authors, known.

 

My library is well-grounded,

abounding with prose and verse.

 

‘Quiet’ is a word often heard

by raucous borrowers looking for

assistance from assistants.

Hardback and paperback books are brought

with DVDs on sport, not sought.

 

My library is well-grounded,

abounding with prose and verse.

 

Librarians work firmly to

provide boundless data, at no cost.

I’m extremely pleased to sense

the impressive heavily stacked shelves

with generous, well-read, book smells.

 

My library is well-grounded,

abounding with prose and verse.

 

There are articles assembled,

spread out on top of spotless tables

causing clever connoisseurs

to stop short and examine the lot

before the stock’s no longer hot!

 

My library is well-grounded,

abounding with prose and verse.
