POETRY POST: My Library

The following is a poem that the first graders at the school I work at performed for the librarian, who is retiring this year. It’s really cute, and really sums up exactly what a library does, so I wanted to share.

My Library
by Varda One 

 It’s only a room with shelves and books,
but it’s far more magical than it looks.

It’s a jet on which I soar
to lands that exist no more.

Or a key with which I find
answers to questions crowding my mind.

Building my habit of learning and growing,
asking and researching till I reach knowing.

Here, I’ve been a mermaid and an elf
I’ve even learned to be more myself.

I think that I shall never see
a place that’s been more useful to me.

With encouraging kind friends with wit
who tell me to dream big and never quit.

It’s only a room with shelves and books,
but it’s far more magical than it looks.
