" My mind is settled and satisfied
with the right of possession.
I never travel without books,
for it is wonderful what repose I take,
and how I continue in this consideration,
that they are at my elbow to delight me when time shall serve;
and in acknowledging what assistance they give unto my life."
Dreaming of my much-loved library
my place of peace
the anchor to my soul,
the sheer delight to my eyes
for now, they are waiting patiently...
lovingly stored away
forever in my dreams...
soon. soon. soon.
we will reunite
for I cannot wait.
