Vocabulary Fetish


Weave dreams from lettered fabric
Paint pictures with vivid word strokes
Season speech with adjective sprinklings
And picante dashes of expletives
Not for every dish, but some like it hot
Locomotive rhythm of verbs make sentences dance
Astound with nouns that tell who, what and where
Multi-syllabic magnificence sculpts masterpieces
Tells tales, constructs moods and navigates journeys
A magic carpet ride through linguistics
Transcends cultures, space and time
A dictionary passport, thesaurus valise
Innumerable books accrue frequent flyer miles
Peddlers of language line shelves infinitely
Free exchange of verbiage lends taste to tongues
And floats through air massaging ear drums
Evoking memory and plying the senses
Idiom rests in vocabulary’s palms
