One Poem Every Day


Your language demonizes


And delights

Delicious morsels of words

Fly off my tongue

And catapult through my ears

Landing in my welcoming brain

I love your language

It wraps me in its web

Of intertwining word play

The Bard is my savior

Save me from our modern linguistic tradegy

Of abbreviations

And slurs

Take me into the cocoon

Of your beautiful verse.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Third entry of one poem a day! I wrote this on July 31, 2014. It was inspired by my Shakespeare Styles class and how much I love Shakespeare.
