It is a man’s most precious heritage,
For everyone leaves a mark,
An impact on the life of others,
That goes on captivating those who crave for knowledge.
The touch of a book is truly magic,
For those who seek solace in it.
A man’s best friend,
It is said to be
Uplifting his soul, setting him free
Expelling the burden that he bears
By his side, it stands
Even in despair.
They are friends that never fail us
And the wisest counselors
An everlasting enrichment, it sure is.
For when we read, we will see,
How to be humble,how to be free
And how human we can be.
