Bookshops

 

I never feel tired of visiting a bookshop

Whether I buy some book or not

The arrays of books in many languages 

Make me feel thrilled for 

Some strange reasons.

The colorful cover pages

The impeccable bindings

The peculiar smell of a new book

Which touches feebly when

We open them softly,

I feel some inexplicable chemistry 

Works between me and the books.

Further, bookshops are never crowded

One can walk freely in aisles

Some even have sofas or chairs

For the interested to read a few pages.

Is it not a wonderful gesture

For the book lovers to browse 

The books without disturbance?

I wish to have and see more

Bookshops and Libraries

Because they are not just timepass

But passages to knowledge.
