Flashing Words - Poem by Nancy Harsanyi

The light of words printed on vellum pages
The delight of ideas transforming minds
Joy unspeakable cascades thoughts from cages
Like soaring ribbons of braided light that blinds
Until truth radiates love, capturing life.

Dull shadows of deceit also imprint books
Creating misery and destruction woes
Pornographic gilted images as crooks
To tarnish young values with fools' golden glows
Until death snuffs out hope, suffocating truth.

Intellectual freedom to read your choice
Is yours alone to decide and teach your child;
Discernment of the best enlightening voice
From a myriad of viewpoints beguiled
Must rest with parents, not library censors!
