JUNE 2001 This year has been a time for me to learn As I have watched your reading pleasures grow And marvelled at your eager need to know And seen your searching eyes that seemed to burn Through wrinkled brows at every page in turn. I've shared the fun with which you loved to show A picture that had caught your fancy so And then had charged your focused minds to yearn To travel to some far-off fabled spot Where eggs are green and dogs are huge and red And dinosaurs haul children off to town And bears and bunnies like to speak and plot; But now I leave for good the lands to which we've fled And hop~ you'~e learned that good books never let you down.
