Liberated in the Library

Santa Clara City Library


Liberated in the Library
by Pat Bustamente, a poet

To be welcomed is to feel esteemed…
That warm feeling of highlights high-beamed…
This is a place that for sure some good books
Will fit the mood perfectly if one really looks.
And the guardians of these treasures
Certainly add to the pleasures…
Polite, understanding, patient and kind —
What you may look for, they work hard to find.
For me it’s the quiet mood, freedom of mind…
I work in the “real world”, need to rest and pretend
I’ll one day reach Heaven. Here for practice I ascend!
