The ancient archives awaited
Waited for centuries to hear my timid footsteps on the stone floor.
Finally I was here
I peered through the window and saw a fantastic world of opportunity and adventure
Of science fiction and fantasy
of romance and intrigue
mystery and danger
I pushed through the doors and entered heaven
I found myself in a world of stories, a world of knowledge,
a world of books
I'm not sure when I'll return home so don't wait up................
