Oh books! books! books!
Most precious commodity you are!
A store house of knowledge;
A warehouse of wisdom of the ages;
To knowledge you are
What a bank is to money;
A channel for sharing new ideas
To the world;
An indispensable weapon
For human progress;
A source of food for the nourishment
Of the the human mind;
Yes, books, you are valuable;
You enable us to travel around the world
Sitting in one place;
Through you we rob shoulders with great minds
We never would have met;
We drink from their spring of
Ever flowing wealth of knowledge;
You inspire and motivate us
To go out and conquer the world;
From you we get encouragement
When we feel defeated,
To keep struggling till we make it;
From you we get courage
To face and overcome
The tough challenges of life.
Great souls of the world know your value
And draw strength from you.
