The Written Word

Aye, the written word Dearly, my dearest friend Bestow the meekest with thy power Liberate thy most ignorant follower And then to them Make thee, great men Aye, touché To wisdom, to wit, to script Tongue also sharp and dreadfully quick But thus a pen mightier and ever brave With one bold stroke, swift of the quill The most ardent of cynics, alas to be swayed

    May the book of Psalms be our greatest example for writing poetry. I like your poem very much. God bless you.
