The World of Books Lives On

The World of Books

The World of Books
Is the Most Remarkable Creation of Man
Nothing Else That He Builds Ever Lasts
Monuments Fall
Nations Perish
Civilizations Grow Old and Die Out
And After an Era of Darkness
New Races Build Others
But in the World of Books are Volumes
That Have Seen This Happen Again and Again
And Yet Live On
Still Young
Still As Fresh As the Day They Were Written
Still Telling Men's Hearts
Of the Hearts of Men Centuries Dead

— Clarence Day

From here.
