A Poem To Stephen


Stephen, I would like to say,
I feel what you mean,
In all that you say.
***
I writhe with language,
And feel the play of words,
Especially at the blank page,
Where I can write my verse.
***
There’s something exciting,
And mystifying about language,
Whether it is English or gibberish.
***
A rhyming poem,
Can get me going,
I absolutely also appreciate,
A good bit of alliterate.
***
Never have I felt more myself,
Than swooning over words,
Like a tailor over felt.
***
There is also an excitement,
In that special moment,
You hear a foreign phrase,
And you just know it.
***
So thank you Mister Fry,
For this spectacular piece,
That please my ears to eat.
