by Patience Strong
My house is full of well-loved books -
They're scattered round the place -
In unexpected corners -
On the shelves and in the case.
But on the table by my bed, I keep a little row -
Of precious books -
My favorite ones -
And when I'm tired I go -
And find some passage that inspires with words like angel wings -
That lift me up above the swirl of petty human things...
A truth from some great poet's pen -
A lovely, lilting phrase -
A message that will spur me on,
And light the darkest days.
