The essence of our spoken word's mere thought
Of actions, when surmised are just intent.
Interpretation from our doings lent;
Words ineffectual are vowed for naught.

Intrinsic trust's from inference ne'er wrought ~
Each overt deed derives impressions spent;
Deficiencies mar aspirations meant ~
Verbiage percieved is often nary sought.

Absent resolve's inadequate prepense;
Avowed intent once covenant's achieved,
Reality's defined by compeer's heed.

All credibility for promise hence
Ambitions met - then credence is conceived;
Enacted words are truly Words InDeed.

I vote we create new words to describe the excellence of your verse as most adjectives are trite and fall short of describing such elegance.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!

Your meter dances like a lilting song,
Your diction toes the realm of the divine;
Such verses in anthologies belong ...

(in other words, this piece was mighty fine!)

But, no less than I have come to expect from you. It's refreshing to read the writing of someone who so obviously cherishes the English language ...

Keep 'em coming, ma'am ...

The power of words seems to be uppermost in most people's minds today...

Well written Nan..

Positively marvelous!

I read the words, crafted by a goddess of language, and relished in the joy such pearls of beauty caused me. Languishing in a state of dullness and blight, I gloried at the infusion of creativity this woman has wrought. Your words are an elixir m'lady, soothing the sorrowful soul and healing the encumbered mind.

You're a trip, miss Nan. How do you know all those big words? LOL. Get me a dictionary and sneak it in here to the 'stute, ok?

You don't know me, but..... maybe one day you will.
