Shelved Affair - Poem by Christine K. Trease

Yellowed pages unturned for ages
Battered spines and bindings
Dust collecting
Knowledge rejecting
Shelf imprinted findings
Tales of woe unfit to know
Sorrow twixt the pages
A book now closed, I suppose
Hides inequities of the ages
Loves desire, lift us higher and make us one alas
Teach us swiftly things once forgotten
Of a curriculum now long past
