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.

Great poem, KK! And you're right; it does read like a spell. XD May it conjure up a muse to inspire you to write more poetry!

My poetry muse has a lot of mojo, so to say...maybe if I could just keep her from wandering off from time to time...but she seems to have come off her last vacation in fine form! I haven't been posting them all here, but I've gotten a bunch of new stuff over at dA...

Nice! I'm glad she's keeping you busy writing! Well it looks like she's here for a while, so take advantage of it! ;p

Sweet! I could read them if you give me a link, but can't comment there. It seems when you ask them to delete you gallery, they ban you. XD

Thanks for the link! Just know that I love your poetry, even if I can't comment. :D

Yeah... >.> I have a full thing of messages as well as art that I can't even look at or answer. *head desks* It's sooo stupid. I can see if I was a nuisance & broke rules, but all i did was leave after they failed to do their job & deal with a person who was harassing me. XD

They do get stupid over there at times...

*nods* Which is why I'm gone, even if I do miss good stuff like your poetry. *sighs*

It's a bit less crazy in the literature corner, and the photo sections, but yeah, I hear ya.

*nods* I'm just glad you're still able to enjoy yourself over there. :D
