Books are the end not the beginning

Words are the origin once set them down they die

Even the Bard is only saved by speech

or conversation of the eye

Books are the terminus the graveyard

We treasure most a living word

Even a memory may move us more

than something that’s unheard

But then my mother oh so winning

could scarcely hear a fell tree drop

I wonder what she made of Hamlet

there on her table top
