The Loud Library

April 8, 2011

A library should have no sound,
or so it’s said, but I have found
that when a kid has found his book
he has to share, kids have to look.

A scream or two, a sudden shriek,
might make kids want to take a peek,
at books they never thought existed,
like fairy tales completely twisted.

“Oh, look! Here’s something really funny!”
“Icky spiders!” “Silly bunny!”
Scary stories, nice and spooky,
A picture book that’s really kooky.

A bit of noise is fine with me,
within a children’s library,
as long as there is not a riot
a change of pace from peace and quiet.
