Books’ Lament by Blair Gaulton

Books’ Lament 
Full of dust;
the books cry.
Are we now mere decorations on the shelf?
No longer to help people;
discover the beauty of knowledge;
to travel beyond ourselves is a form of wealth.
Take us away, read;
go to places you will not believe.
We help you develop and grow
to learn, to think and discern.
Don’t let us sit there
and be eaten away by insects or dust.
