Words of Wonder

Do you ever find a word, and roll it about 

Over your tongue and through your teeth?

Have you ever gazed upon a new word

Lusting to add it to your vocabulary?

Has there ever been a word 

That jumped off a page and into your heart?

Words are wonderful things,

Language is so rich.

Every syllable, every cadence

A trill, a burr, a twang–bringing the word 

To its regional origin.

Words, to lead you down a forest path

To mysteries unknown.
