Words

 

Words, like tiny ice crystals, may chill the air

Words, like tiny sparks, may kindle a warming flame

Words, like seeds planted, may produce flowers or weeds

 

Words, carelessly broadcast may do much harm

Words, cautiously broadcast may cause alarm

Words, joyously broadcast may disarm

 

Words may condemn or redeem

Words go forth but do not return

Words wisely used may save

 

What say you of words?

What words say you?

 

Words (c)2008 Quentin Clingerman
