'My School Library' by a student
A room full of shelves, all filled to the brim Of doorways where you escape at a whim.
Each book a doorway to a different land, Where you might join the poor, the rich or the grand.
At first glance, the doors are all tightly closed, But pick up a book to leave a doorway exposed.
Step into a wonderland where you might discover New people - a friend, a sister, a brother.
And if you get tired of one story, you see Just pick up another book, where you can be Whatever you please, the choice is all yours In these mystical lands there are simply no laws.
Each book gives you freedom to do the unthinkable Your book is your sword - you'll be unsinkable.
If you wander around all the rooms in our schook You will no doubt agree, the library's our jewel.
