What hopeless and hapless dreams be pinned

The wistful and wishful of wantings penned

A magic in the tragic of what world brings

From pulse and pierce of perfect pearled strings


Thus, the sentient sentiments sequenced

By the pride, prejudice, or pretense

Are chaffed and challenged to wit

By reality’s grating and grainy grit


Within the lyrical and lilting lines

Repeating rhymes in rhythmic time

The hidden bidden to be heard

One wonder of the written word


The tripping, tricky, and sticky tones

The greatest and latest in words alone

A mystical, mythical, magical part

A proverbial product of pronounced art


Precocious and playful preambles

As elegant and eloquent rambles

As little, laughing lines in resonance

Are wrapped and robed in consonance

  3. Very musical, flowing and rhythmic and I truly felt in tune with these verses: “The hidden bidden to be heard/One wonder of the written word…” Brilliant my friend!
