Be wary of the fine words

That drip like honey

Into eager ears

Like sweet red wine

They imbibe the mind

An effervescence

That tickles the ego


Steel yourself against whim

Truth can hide like shadows

And not every intent

Is so easy seen

That comes between

What is said

And what is meant


The measure of language

Is found in what we do

Not what we say

For words too easily lied

And hearts easily plied

When love songs

Are all we hear


Sunlight is beauty reflected

But glare when seen head on

Sometimes there are angles

That offer a better view

If something is really true

A step to either side

Can hold a revelation
