    Books hold the keys to wonders all.

  16. Book Borrower
    Poet: Robert Service

    I am a mild man, you'll agree
    But red my rage is
    When folks who borrow books from me
    Turn down their pages.

    Or when a chap a book I lend,
    And find he's loaned it
    Without permission to a friend
    As if he owned it.

    But worst of all I hate those crooks
    (May raging fires burn them)
    Who beg the loan of cherished books
    And don’t return them.

    My books are tendrils of myself
    No shears can sever....
    May he who takes one from its shelf
    Be forsaken forever.
