Falling In Love With A Language


I will address you with my lungs
And still expect a breath of air
Each spoken word's a different verse
Though sometimes sounds the same

I will engage this sometimes circle logic
The relationship between my language and my words
These twisted toungues, they tie the knot
Engaging me to your words

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
