Consternation, reverberation, manipulation, stipulation,
population, postulation, congregation, registration.
Words growing ever in size,
letters that form before your eyes,
business built and business fall,
in words scrawled upon the wall,
Kingdom come and Kingdom go,
because of words spoken to slow.

Letters written to friends who leave,
words that tell a heart to grieve,
songs elate with words of love,
use a phrase and rise above,
many tongues from lands afar
transport words out to a star,
cries in the night a broken heart,
with bitter words do lovers part,
echoes from mountain peaks repeat
words with which the universe speaks,
living in the shade of oral terms,
words are read by one who learns,
before your tongue can blind your eyes,
before your heart gives up and cries,
do one thing for our sake now,
shut up! take a silence vow.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
