He Smote the Word…

from english-heritage.org.uk

What does a wordsmith

really have to work with?

Vowels, consonants and phrases

and unpublished works in phases.


No lurid platitudes allowed,

he has long ago since vowed…

Lovingly crafted spinnings of yearning yarns,

tales of a lone acrobat storming barns!


He dreams of plucking heartstrings,

of visions floating on bright wings

and taking on a life of their own,

for the toddlers and the grown.


Adding strength to newborn sprouts,

allowing his many doubts,

to flower into adulthood,

but never fully understood.
