A DRINK TO HEALTH

doghfrr

WRITING IS A MEDICINE

A SOOTHING BALM AT LEAST

DRAWING OUT THE WORDS

FOR THE TASTING OF A FEAST

BIT BY BIT THE FLAVOURS STOP

AND TOUCH UPON THE TONGUE

EXPERIENCES TO BE SAVOURED

THEIR PRAISES TO BE SUNG

A DRINK TO HEALTH

A TOAST TO WORDS

THAT RACE ACROSS THE PAGE

AND FLIT AWAY LIKE BIRDS

THERE IS NO GREATER GIFT

THAT ONE CAN GIVE A MAN

A WORD, A PHRASE, A SENTENCE

AND THE WORLD IS IN HIS HAND.
