Ancient Words – A Poem

Image by Gerhard Gellinger from Pixabay

Ancient words,

Verbal coinage of the past.

What mystical phrases they spell

Prithee tell.

Wondrous tales by bards of olden.

Of Paradise fields, of flowers golden.

Ancient words woven

Like warm clout into a blanket,

Wrapping waves of joy ’round the heorte.

Forsooth, howbeit so grand,

Ancient words, when spoken today –

‘Though in the present we stay,

Transport us otherwhere,

To “Once upon a time…” where

Words were lofty fare,

In a far away, fair and magical land.
