Maupassant Dit - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Imagine, if you will, a stage.
And standing there, a wrinkled sage.
His name is Guy de Maupassant
long dead of course, yet - nonobstant -
He says black words on a white page
will always have the heart engage
its soul, which has an innate flair
and, through the letters, is laid bare.

    Very nice, Herr Nehrlich,

    This is a clever little piece. Rhyme & Meter is strong and the message reveals the power of words to affect not only the mind but the spirit. Bravo.9 from me with wishes for a joyous Christmas.
