Peace and Quiet

Shakespeare

I hide my photos
in-between volumes
of “Shakespeare.”

From pages of prose
I unearth memories
at a leisurely pace.

Against the leather spine
my nails tap a warning:

Shh!

A library is meant for quiet.

  1. The last line reminded me of a show I used to watch, All that. They would do a skit where this woman who was librarian would make obscene noises, and the scream: QUIET! THIS IS A LIBRARY!

    It was humorous, which I’m pretty sure this isn’t meant to come off that way 🙂

  2. Outstanding poetry! It deserves several reflective readings to extract all the “good” you have put into it. 😛
