No Words to Describe...


Actions speak louder than words
a practical demonstration of intent
that has a universal appeal to mark
the importance of a worthy appeal

But words though how limited
can color with difference the act
of any person who likes to express
something of worthy note to know

When caught with an awe at a moment
by something of remarkable significance
sometimes we run out of words to describe
our intimate token appreciation of its beauty

Even poets struggle for words to inscribe
about the purest expression from the heart
that can truly represent the candid images
of our imaginations into a realistic existence

    words are the garb, the apparel our intents wear...but yes many times we get short of words for the right expression of the true intent! (Report) Reply

    words offer
    and alter
    the scene of hostility
    to that of cordiality (Report) Reply

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
