The Library.


Glowing, white marble
reflects your beauty as
fountain of knowledge,
creating mind fields where
neuronal bodies quench written thirst,
You give them
pages of papyrus, of cedar
of camphor, ink of Egyptians,
Macedonians, Persians, elaborate pigmented dyes
of ebony, of navy, indigo.
Covers of oil, ceramic, metallic,
ideas of relic philosophers, poets,
muses of creation, imagination, love.
This is their salvation-
It is the only place on La Terre, where they discover
true love.

Please don't let them
Crush your petals
And throw you to the wind
Lilly, please love yourself

Pristine, white marble
reflects your beauty as
a fountain of knowledge,
creates mind fields where
neuronal bodies
quench written thirst,
You give them
pages of papyrus, cedar,
camphor, ink of Egyptians,
Macedonians, Persians,
elaborate pigmented dyes
of ebony, navy, and indigo.
Covers of oil, ceramic, metallic,
ideas of relic philosophers, poets,
muses of creation, imagination, love.
This is their salvation-
The only place on La Terre,
where they discover true love.

Just a few minor changes - removing extra words and eliminating the weak "ing" words. great poem!!!!!!! either way...yours or mine Smile.
