THE LIBRARY DOOR

 

The door to the library is a wardrobe door

Opening to Narnia, magic and more.

To Wonderland with Alice, open the gate,

Skip through the Looking Glass – adventures wait.

Thrill to the Hobbit and the wondrous Ring,

Be there to watch the Return of the King.

With Toad of Toad Hall, Ratty and Mole,

Explore green River Banks – a waterside stroll.

The terror of Earthsea, its dragons and wizard,

A shadow-beast, evil, with dangerous vizard.

In the Midnight Garden, when the clock in the hall

Strikes thirteen, a ghost will call.

Behind wood panelling and under your feet

Is the home of the Borrowers whom you’ll meet.

The door to the library is a wardrobe door

Opening to Hogwarts, Harry and more.
