The Wonderful World of Words

Within this realm I can converse Palaver, prattle or parley So many words from which to choose A choice to winnow, will and weigh With words I can tell a story Anecdote, fable or novel Or just convey some useless facts Unmistakable, data, gospel They can tell you what I’m feeling Sensations, semblance, perception Even describe the way I look Visualize, perceive, envision Words can induce feelings of love Affection, fervor, ardency And all to often inflict pain Suffering, anguish, misery Sometimes words are thought provoking Impelling, cogent, alluring While others can keep you guessing Uncertain, assume, surmising With words there are no boundaries Barriers, brims, extremities So free your imagination Invention, idea, artistry
