Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

What's an oar and what's a paddle
what's a mount and what's a saddle
yaks in herds and flocks of birds
who can ever master words?

Even definitions vary
as you browse thick dictionaries
but be simple, use your noodle
tap the apt app we call Google.

    who can ever master words?
    Moot question, no need, the best of poets do not try master words
    they use them as their vehicles, their paddles and saddles as you rightly said.(Report)Reply
