Towards the golden light

To visit an underprivileged school;

From daily toil a welcome respite;

To bestow a gift of books;

Fills my soul with much delight.

 

I watch each expressive face;

Light up with the joy of receiving;

Their faith in mankind restored;

In human kindness believing.

 

A book and a love of reading;

A gift worth its weight in gold;

I watch them embrace their story;

Revelling as its adventure does unfold.

 

Their first step towards education;

A movement towards lightness;

They bathe in the golden warmth;

of opportunities dawning brightness.
