Silence

silence

In the dusty old
Deserted library hall
The wishes of the librarian
Have finally come to fruition

For there is nobody reading
By the library desks
They’re all in the I.t. Suite
Reading set texts on the web

So librarian has his wish
And the books sit on wooden shelves
Like revered benedictines
Sat in lines in silence.

    1. Cheers for reading, Delyn. Apologies for the delay in responding, but having set myself a target of a poem a day means I’ve been away from the keyboard – and I’ve only just seen this 🙂 Please feel free to have a browse – and if there’s anything that you like – feel free to comment.
