A little piece on one of the most serene places to go.

Solace of Ink

Shelves upon shelves house the fruits of days gone by Thousands of sheets trace the print of thousands of fingers

Shelves upon shelves house the fruits of days gone by Thousands of sheets trace the print of thousands of fingers Turn by turn information is revealed for the curious eye Quietly one can feast on this archive of treasures

Delicious and rich, the air lingers with aromatic fragrances But all that changed on one fateful day

Delicious and rich, the air lingers with aromatic fragrances But all that changed on one fateful day The world went online and became access all areas No longer was the need for the feel of a page

All was there at the click of a button Everything you could want through a sterile screen

All was there at the click of a button Everything you could want through a sterile screen The comfort of the world from an algorithmic machine A super-highway right at your fingertips

Draining your soul of the essence of life Now going out is just a laborious task

Draining your soul of the essence of life Now going out is just a laborious task Staying in is now the new going out The library on the corner has become a desolate place

Where only a few faithful now remain to fly the flag With the speed of growth to enhance your life

Where only a few faithful now remain to fly the flag With the speed of growth to enhance your life The matrix will burn out and the world will be unplugged Once again the library shall rise to reveal all its pleasures

And delight us with all its fruits so sweet and pure
