Something happens when I step into a room
of towering shelves of books.
How small they make me feel,
Yet how great I yearn to be.
In my special nook, I choose to be
Alone with a book of my own choice.
Prompted by the voice
That says, “Read on. Learn more.”
I sit and read, and think and ask;
I go on exploring, and I discover–
There’s so much to learn
So much to understand!
Dear great minds and souls from all times,
Wait for me to step into your pages.
I want to learn all that I can
So that I can be all that I can.
