Poem: Word Magic

Who says I can't write rhymed couplets (I think I did, not long ago....LOL)...well this is just a silly piece, something I wrote about a half hour before I went to the gym....and somehow I manage to use the word alliteration in it.  That kind of makes me proud...It's a metapoem, a poem about poetry writing, half ode to the magic of words, and maybe half spell for poetic power (well, it kind of reads like some old spells I've seen...)


Word Magic



Ah, the words, their lovely sound
weaving, weaving, round and round
oh and ah and eh and ee
keeping pleasant company
moving through the beat of time
magic in their lovely rhyme.
Assonance you are my friend,
Binding things until the end.

Ah, the words, their lovely sound
weaving, weaving, round and round,
t and r and s and p
strong sounds like an ancient tree,
your beat resounds into the night
to carry meaning to my sight,
Alliteration strong and true
make the sounds do what they do.

Ah the words, their lovely sound
weaving, weaving, round and round,
Rhythm, made of pause and stress,
laughing child with golden tress,
you bring the magic dance to frame
meaning in its golden game,
Ah the words, their lovely sound
weaving, weaving round and round.

Sing of love or sing of pain,
Sing of laughter in the rain,
Sing of hope or sing a groan,
Magic's in the word's own tone,
Weave a dream by candlelight,
Spin a nightmare in our sight,
Ah, the words, their lovely sound
Make it happen, round and round.
