I was pleased to see this poem published as Front Page Feature at the Open Arts Forum recently.
I wonder if dusty libraries are becoming a thing of the past? I know my son scoffed at my requirement for more book shelves when we moved house recently. “Why do you need all those books? You can get everything online digitally” he remarked. I’m not sure about that myself. One of my favourite books is an old natural history guide with information bordering on mythological - not so much fact as animal rumour!
