The library has been closed in my town,
And, for shame, I had to pay for my books.
But Amazon doesn’t give me the same feel,
Without little reading crannies and nooks.
Yet, there is no reason to keep them closed,
For everyone social distances by choice.
We find our books and a quiet place to sit
And get away with only our mind’s voice.
So, if there is any place that we readers
Need more than ever while staying wary,
It is that wondrous place where we escape,
So please hurry up and open the library.
