Example Poem

Little Brick Library

When I was young,  and that means wee,
My nearby library did astound.
I started stopping every day.

I’d roam the shelves from about  three
’til five o’clock or ’til I’d found
one book I could not put away.

It was wonderful they were free;
the best resource that I had found
and books had so darn much to say.

This was long ‘fore girls intrigued me.
The building was a good friend found,
where I’d rather hang-out than play.

Those short years opened wide the door.
to much I still plan to explore.
