An Ode to ‘Off the Shelf’

One of our first-time Off the Shelf-ers was inspired to write this poem after our November evening.
Come this month (Mon Dec. 17) and see what it inspires in you…

OFF THE SHELF

Let’s lower those lights
Draw breath deep
Enunciate and conjure
Great stories to keep

To the great power
of books held dear
to our art
Wealth of dreams

of a library
close to our
hearths
In hearts

Conjuring
Catching ideas
Chances clutched
Channeling

Signs of minds
Focused
On infinite positive
Possibilities

Found of the
Shelf
Wandering
Around Merrickville

Friends
Sharing words
And feelings
Finding meaning

Charles R. Merredew
