In remembrance of Pien

In memory of Pien


Gothic monolith,
My home away from home.
Griffins guarding me,
Guiding me, into the unknown.

Echoes of voices,
Sanctuary of knowledge.
Stone foundation,
Giant windows, overlooking College.

Friendly greetings,
Refuge for some.
Majestic pillars,
Brass railings, leading inquisitive minds to come.

In the peaceful garden,
Friendships unfold.
Stories budding, growing
come and behold.


Chih-Pien Chen (December 19, 1956 - August 19, 2014) was a beloved librarian at the Lillian H. Smith Branch, whose infectious smile and kindness touched everyone she met.
