Good Librarians Are…

Loved this. Sounds like you’d make a very good librarian yourself…Judy

The Happy Nerd

The poem posted below details the charcateristics of a good libraian. Tis my hope that all librarians are as such. Agreed?


The best ones fathom
the anxieties of trolls:
decaying bridges,
the keen edge of swords.

They care for the goblins
that cower between the pages
of fairytales and the dragons
that spit fire, smudging

the ink little boys
dream of living.
Hair buns are but a ploy.
Librarians share council

with Merlin and, with Gandalf,
wield arms against the corruption
of hobbits and men. With a wink
and a wave, they brave the tempest,

pick the pockets of pirates,
sharing their horde
with a circle of children,
wide eyed and afeared,

dangling from the spire
of the very next word.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Thanks for reblogging my poem. I am not nor was I ever a librarian. I am a teacher/professor of literature and writing, but I very much appreciate a good librarian. God bless!!!
