For The Love of Words



Every time I crack the spine

It takes me on a journey,

Every time I read a line

It takes me on a journey.


Whole worlds weaved with words

Where I can get lost,

Wandering wistfully through lettered lands.


Would that I could be a writer,

A creator of new worlds.

I dream and strive and try and die;

It’s all for the love of words.
