Words

Poem by Matheson Bayley, 2003

Weaving words and words that charm
Spin a yarn of words that harm
Witty, wily, wonderful
Gentle breeze or thunder-ful
Wrong or right; written, said
On the page or in your head
Sown and watered; rank and rotten
Grown immortal or forgotten

Words in jest and words sincere
Words are best when loud and clear
Muttered words may be misheard
Woe the once mistaken word!
Tools or weapons oft' abused
Wisely crafted, or misused
Countless uttered every hour
Sweet or sour — know their power!
