Words Of Wonder

Words Of  Wonder short poem

A word on a line joined with many and more
A story to tell from behind a closed door
A line on a page, a paragraph to make
From a thoughtful sage or the ones who forsake

A page in a book telling tales so tall
Just have a quick look, hear the whispering call
A book on a shelf, a dusty old tome
A wealth of words from across the room

A history in words telling tales of pain
Of battles and bloodshed and tears shed in vain
Tyrants and demons live within the short lines
Preaching tales of tomorrow and the end of times

Words of magic, mystery and prose
Of light and laughter and faces aglow
Words of science and nature and light
Of suns and stars and comets so bright

A library of life in unending rhymes
Of joyous love and wonderful times
A letter, a word, a line or a page
A thought laid down for the rest of the age.
