Glimmer of Hope.

Welcome to our house of knowledge

The light that shines beckons one and all

Our door is open come on in.

We’ve gathered here to share poetic words

We hope that when you leave

Next time you may wish to bring a friend

Our door is open come on in

Welcome to our house of knowledge.
