‘Dewey’s duty’ by Cona Adams

‘Dewey’s duty’

by Cona Adams

From the book, DEWEY, the Small Town Library Cat who Touched the World (Available from Surrey Libraries).

Dewey, harshly stuffed down the library return box;

hungry, frostbitten, frightened,

and hopelessly alone,

accepted his rescue with purpose and grace.

He, the adopted one,

exercised his self-appointed duty

of greeting every patron

of the small-town library

for nineteen years.

His “live in the moment” magic touched the world and won my heart.
