Words, Words, Words

Words, words, words
Seeming plucked from empty air
Sticking here and everywhere
Like prized stamps in a childhood album
Grammatical compendium
Words, words, words
Some common overheard each day
Linked in phrases people say
Painting pictures in the mind
Every type and every kind
Words, words, words
Fresh ideas soon forming prose
Easy come and easy goes
Taking thoughts and making real
Rolling round to make them feel
Words, words, words
Ever seeking to take shape
Rhythm finds its sure escape
Some chosen for their symmetry
Coalesced to poetry
And not just words, words, words
