Nouns are profound

March 15, 2019

A letter is merely the small sibling,

of a word, that forms great sound.

Words are pre-formed sentences,

that are just waiting to be found;

A comma is like an amber light,

ready to brake, or move ahead;

a story’s pace, must be just right,

to decide to stop, . . Or pause instead.

So excited, are expressive Adjectives,

for mischievously they play,

with Verbs, they’ll tend to tease and taunt,

quite happily, each and every day!

So, how will this story’s plot unfold,

while some words stand out very BOLD?

As a shining group of descriptive Nouns,

their prominence seemingly twofold.

Their picture paints a thousand words,

our lust for them enormous!

Without these Nouns to imagine dreams,

all stories would be pointless.
