O, For a Book
"0 for a book and a shady nook!"
You recollect the- rhymes,
Written how many years ago
In placid, happier times?
Today no shady nooks are ours,
With half the world at strife,
And dark ambitions laying waste
' The pleasant things of life:
But still the cry for books is heard,
For solace of the magic word.
"O for a book," the cry goes forth,
' O fofa book to read;
To soothe us in our weariness,
The laggard hours to speed!"
From countless hospitals it comes,
Wher stricken soldiers lie,
Who gave their youth, who gave their
Lest liberty should die.
How small a favor to implore:
The books we've finished with no
A book can have a thousand lives,
With each new reader, one:
A book should have a thousand lives
Before its course is run.
And we few kinder things can do
Our gratitude to show,
Than give the freedom of our shelves
To those that need it so.
Nor let them ask without avail
The sweet beguilement of a tale.
