A library is a wishing well,
A forest full of trees,
A magic tower in a wood,
A ship on the seven seas.


A library is a mountain peak,
A palace built of jade,
A chilly beach beside a lake,
A flower scented glade.


Libraries are just buildings,
But the stories that they hold,
Are paths to different places,
Just waiting to unfold.
