The Wordsmith - Poem by William J. (Skip) Henderson Jr.
Language, the frame work for most all communication
Among humankind; words are its construct.
Words convey that communication
Giving it body and definition.
We use a dictionary to define words and give them meaning
But words are used to mean other than how they are defined;
Used to denote opposites or describe sundry emotions
To suit the purpose of the speaker or writer.
The wordsmith uses his skill to expand
Upon the meaning of words formed in phrases.
The job of the wordsmith is to make sure the message
Is delivered with maximum impact and brevity
Giving the broadest meaning to the words used.
