They happily show me their backs,
they always stop me in my tracks,
their numbers are beyond my count.
And page by page these books will tell
all the stories that I love so well
with still new mysteries to be found.
I've read them all a hundred times,
some have cracked or broken spines,
their joys and wisdom printed black.
They are my joy, they are my pleasure,
they are my friends, they are my treasure
to which my road always leads back.
