Of what use is a palace for me?
Only to wander about aimless and remain a mime?
Instead give me a cozy cottage and a candle's flame,
There I only yearn for some peace and lots of time.
Don't get me silver, don't gift me gold,
As unworthy as these can be.
I only crave for sweet solitude,
To set my soul and mind free.
Worries or problems can't reach me here,
There's no place left for envy too.
When I'm here, I weave my own world,
With countless books, me and you.
From the first break of dawn,
I’m lost in a trance with my only one.
I read and read to my heart's content,
Till the last ray of the evening sun.
They teach me about life,
They take me to different places.
They tell me about life's experiences,
Be it enormous quantities or miniscule traces.
When it’s late and about time,
I sulk to leave this space.
Because such a paradise is duly,
Every book aficionado’s happy place.
