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.
