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and unpublished works in phases.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.
