I’m taking a trip to the library today,

I’m in need of a good read.

The nights of late have been the darkest to date,

It calls for a brief getaway.

So many books, but which to choose?

A half-burnt volume of Paradise Lost;

Or a lightly singed edition of War and Peace.

Might I check the rubble for a classic?

Or resign myself to a historical text intact,

Recounting a great battle fought long ago.

I best hurry and make my decision,

I feel the first drop of rain.
