Treasure Trove II

by Jem Croucher
I get lost in a good bookshop
they are like a treasure trove
and fortunately Lewes town
has them in spades and droves

So of a Wednesday morning
with the sunshine proving warm
we drove there for a browsing
which for us has been the norm

And in a darkened basement
I found Nirvana waiting there
shelves of ancient volumes
just waiting there to share

their secrets with the reader
who will in their pages find
the treasures that I speak of
for the soul and for the mind

Yes, I get lost in a good bookshop
for with patience and good measure
I know that every time I come
I'll find a waiting treasure.
