A Poetic Thanks to Library Volunteers


Tomorrow is one of the best days on the library calendar: our annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. Because it’s National Poetry Month, I thought it would be fun to commemorate the occasion haiku style.


We love volunteers
Without them, we’d be broken,
A book with no spine


Takes many delicious forms
We choose barbecue


Tomorrow, we feast
On ribs, brisket, pork, and more
Don’t forget the sauce


It’s all to show thanks
And let our volunteers know
They butter our roll


Not literally
I’m saying they’re important,


It’s poor poetry
To state your exact meaning
So forgiveness, please


But it must be said:
Our volunteers are the best,
Quite literally
