WORDS OF WONDER

A word on a line

joined with many and more,

a story to tell

from behind a closed door.

 

A line on a page

and a paragraph to make,

from a thoughtful sage

to the ones who forsake.

 

A page in a book

telling tales short and tall,

just have a quick look,

hear the whispering call.

 

A book on a shelf,

many dusty old tomes,

a wealth of words

from across quiet rooms.

 

A history in words,

telling sad tales of pain;

of battles and bloodshed

and tears shed in vain.

 

Tyrants and demons

live within the short lines,

telling tales of tomorrow

and the end of our times.

 

Words of science;

of nature and light;

of suns, stars

and comets so bright.

 

Pages of magic;

of mystery and prose;

of light and laughter

and faces aglow.

 

A library of life

in unending rhymes,

of joyous love

and wonderful times.

 

A letter, a word,

a line or a page,

thoughts laid down

across eons of age.
