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.
