Ode to Birmingham Central Library

I sit in the beating heart
Of all knowledge
Wrapped around me
Stairways to the mind
Essence of imagination hanging
Heavy in the air
Like a contagion
Drawing you in
Calling to your soul
Encased in wires
A tangle of dreams
Stars that welcome
All the lost souls
All those
Yearning to be free
The gracious good
Of the public free library

S J Menary
