Ode to Library

Silence falls

upon these hollowed halls

soft chatter,

and the clicking of computers,

a sacred place to come and read

"After all this time?"

"Always."

 

The library is a place to read,

but it's also so much more than that.

It's...

 

A place where we become 

tributes,

half-bloods,

witches,

wizards,

trolls,

heros,

villains,

Dauntless,

dectectives,

mystical creatures,

lovers,

Twi-hards,

nerds,

members of fellowships 

and companies alike,

and anyone we choose to be.

 

A place where we

take off the jackets

and wear them as our own.

 

A place with the most friendly people 

welcome fellow readers in

with bright smiles,

and advice on good books to read.

 

A place where "As you wish"

and "Okay"

means "I love you".

 

A place where not everyone 

who wanders is lost.

 

A place where you can

come back

over and over again

without fear of judgement.

 

A place to meet new

and old friends.

 

A place to find a book,

a new world,

a new perspective.
