I have to preface this. I have a blog called Life in the Library, that until today, I hadn't really considered what that meant. Because of a friend's blog, I found an image I want to use on my blog of a circus. I haven't quite figured out how to use it yet, but it still made me consider writing a poem today on what that means to me.
Life in the Library
Working in a library is sometimes
Like being in the Circus
There's clowns who make you laugh
And wild animals who make you cringe
Then there's a high wire act
When a child screams unendingly
But the most beautiful part is
Like a knife thrower when
A child suddenly gets how wonderful
It is to be able to read!
