The Spoonbill Generator

Oddments From the Bookstores

The shelving groaned with weight tomes [Kevin Andrew Murphy]

Poor things: they missed their former homes [Kansas Sam]

In reading rooms of earnest scholars. [tonedeaf]

The dust was thick on the pages
Gathered slowly through the ages [Nym]

Silent but for acid-paper hollers [asdf]

Silent men and women roamed the aisles [Nym]

Exchanging stolen glances, secret smiles [Kansas Sam]

And secret motes of sweet secretions [Anon.]

The air was laden with mystery [Nym]

For the books were by Agatha Christery [asdf]
