                                           Syllables form one’s will… “enables” 
                                                      those words of spurge, 
                                                   to encourage, or otherwise…
                                                     disguise, one’s intentions.
                                                        Use your words well,
                                                      for any precept can tell,
                                               when human concepts mean well!

    John, so many forms of poetry have strict syllable schemes. I am not familiar with the didactic form, but appreciate the message in this one. Sometimes for the sake of "syllable counting" in writing poetry, our messages are not as clear as they might have been without counting. Thanks for your comments on the Halloween poem. We didn't have much growing up either, but I used to wear old costumes from dance recitals on Halloween. Love, Carolyn

    Words are like putty in the hands of a true "artiste". They can be bent or twisted to mean anything you want. That's how a lot of gossip gets staarted. You can say just as much by what you leave out as you can by what you say. Good job here my friend. God Bless, JB
