Books, books, books!
I had found the secret of a garret room
Piled high with cases in my father's name;
Piled high' packed large,--where, creeping in and out
Among the giant fossils of my past,
Like some small nimble mouse between the ribs
Of a mastodon, I nibbled here and there
At this or that box, pulling through the gap,
In heats of terror, haste, victorious joy,
The first book first. And how I felt it beat
Under my pillow, in the morning''s dark,
An hour before the sun would let me read!
At last, because the time was ripe,
I chanced upon the poets.
