His library is wider than its walls
and taller than the border of its roof,
It has oceans, mountains and paths
leading deeper ever deeper into forests.
It has galaxies and deep space void
were spiders walk on wispy legs.
There are salt and honey, both ambrosia
and toxin, both deceits and facts.
So before you open up its doors
look back with care and the world you leave
See how minuscule an ocean is,
how wee the world, compared to every dream.
