       The symbol of words

Words are symbols like flying crane,
Ever circling, clever, inane.
Some dear and some insincere and
Some whisper foolishness, your ear.

They air more then define you know.
And they say more than, such is so.
Some lovely as the daffodil,
Some sugar coat a bitter pill.

And I have joined their revelry,
In books, letters and fantasy.
They have opened many a door,
Their like chameleons, of allure.

But it's up to you to keep them sane,
They can misinterpret, the plain.
Subject to your final virtue,
It is your view, selects the true.

So love them like the stars that dwell, for
They've traveled heaven, as well as hell.

Sy,
Your words so caste a magic spell
Of lyric rhyme we love so well
And seem to dance 'cross space and age
And never touch the printed page
Just as the young Trakehners bound
And never seem to touch the ground
So supple is the gait they prance
Just as your poetry seems to dance
Love ya
Liz

Keeps you warm throughout the night?? It's 85 degrees, Sy! We have the A/C on!!   hehe.

Good poem, Sy. Words are, indeed, whatever we wish for them to be...a gentle touch or a weapon of disaster...their intent is in the mind of the speaker.

Words chase each other in my head
They can't be said
Never, never.
Saying them would show a me
No one should see
Ever, ever.

On the other hand, you use words so well and paint a portrait of a man beloved by all. *S* Well done, Seymour!
