Thoughts from a bookworm in a library...

 Oh library, great library
you make my heart beat faster;
you're full of words of wisdom
spread out for me to master.
With my precious ticket
waving in the air,
I can own a little bit
of every book in there...
My eyes eat words for breakfast,
chomp knowledge into chunks
of easy, bite sized pieces
when its time for lunch.
A volume here, a volume there
will fill my tum for tea
with recipes, or pictures,
as I gobble what I see
in my imagination...
and all of it is free! 
So I'm a happy bookworm.
Leave me to browse in peace
among this paper paradise! 
May its glory never cease.

Wise Old Bird Sees Red?

When you can't see the wood for the trees,
and life grinds you down to your knees,
Have a think... and then in a blink
say "Bother!" and do as you please!

N.B. Instead of "Bother!", insert any two syllable expletive of your choice. Depending on mood at the time, this may be the ruder the better?
Jinksy exits left, giggling...

Thanks to Carrie, from whose picture-prompt I took this detail:-)
