What makes a library?

The whispers of a book,
Fingers brushing over them,
Tickling their pages,
This is what makes a library.

The whispers of a book,
Fingers brushing over them,
Tickling their pages,
This is what makes a library.

The gentle chatter of people,
As they sit and read,
Clutching books in their hands,
This is what makes a library.

The silent scuttle of librarians,
Shelving and retrieving,
Helping people when they ask,
This is what make a library.

The slowing of time,
People in trances,
Obsessed with the book,
This is what makes a library.

The whispers of a book,
Fingers brushing over them,
Tickling their pages,
This is what makes a library.
