Full Bookshelves

For FOWC: Rue and My Vivid Blog’s prompt: Library. I volunteer weekly at my local library and love it when little kids come in with their families! ❤


May every child know the wonder of a library:
Stories bound beautifully, everywhere to see.
I do not rue the advent of e-books,
Yet nothing compares to how a full bookshelf looks,
Nor the opportunity to browse throughout —
Who knows what one may come to read about?
To the community, these books are such a boon,
But much more than one can read anytime soon!

  1. Beautifully done! Like old photos, old books connect us with the past so much more than digital copies.

    time’s musty smell…
    in the darkened library
    rows of dusty books
