It’s a friendly place, a quiet friendly place
No need to explain yourself here everyone can tell
Everyone has the one connection here
All that knowledge and enjoyment neatly laid out
Old and new sit shoulder to shoulder their spines only giving a clue
A child’s giggle breaks the spell, a laugh from the children’s corner
Should we frown and shush?
No the enjoyment is there, the excitement of discovery
Understanding will come as they learn to immerse themselves in another world
Another world half created by a stranger, half by an endless imagination
Choices made, anticipation begins
Will you make me smile, will you make me cry, will you make me wonder?
You will take me to places far away, places I will only visit in my mind
Places I will remember for ever
Introduce to me new people, people I will like and people I will dislike
You will be mine for only a while, you will return to your home
Waiting patiently and silently for your next keeper
Hibernating until you awaken another mind.
