For the love of books…

libraryPlease bury me in the library

In the clean, well-lighted stacks
Of Novels, History, Poetry,
Right next to the Paperbacks.
Where the Kids’ Books dance
With True Romance
And the Dictionary dozes.
Please bury me in the library
With a dozen long-stemmed proses.
Way back by a rack of Magazines,
I won’t be sad too often
If they bury me in the library
With Book worms in my coffin.
