Best Joy Wellington Poems

+ Fav Poet


Lips for laughter lips that share
Love and kisses with one so dear

Lips give praises to the Great King
Words of adoration loves to sing

O when the soul is corrupted defile
Lips will utter words grossly vile

Lips can torment the life of a brother
Can spoil the joy and peace of another

A variety of shapes size and color
But none more precious than the other

Each has it's own curves to admire
Some ice cold some filled with fire

    Lips my fellow poets, is the most underrated organ of the brings joy, but in the same breath can wreck havoc in a person's life. Thanks Carol for allowing us this expression.
