hide and seek among bookcases

dsc_6817

catch dream delightful nasal whiff,

antique calf covers, pungent pages,

sentimental this second-hand sniff,

older books witness to past ages.

 

second-hand bookshop unassuming,

frontage design from yester-year,

author arguments begin booming,

old fashioned, biblio atmosphere.

 

piles of books, passage near-blocked,

some covers warped, or detached,

some printed contents worm-pocked,

older authors not quickly despatched.

 

heritage honoured with due respect,

past authors offered warm embraces,

many ideas on pages freckle-specked

playing hide and seek among bookcases.
