On Opening a New Book by Abbie Farwell Brown
Here's an adventure! What awaits
Beyond these closed, mysterious gates?
Whom shall I meet, where shall I go
Beyond the lovely land I know?
Above the sky, across the sea?
What shall I learn and feel and be?
Open, strange doors, to good or ill!
I hold my breath a moment still
Before the magic of your look.

What will do do to me, O Book?

Ceesa knows what the musty book smell is..."magical."
