I wish a word could run and row;
could toss and tumble to and fro
as if such word were thought carefree
as any word could ever be
when written by someone like me
who’d stumble on the words I see
like this one coming up right here. Please,
look it up and think it clearly
meant to run and row past you;
to toss and tumble like you do,
or once did. [Ibid.] Think past the age
when words that were written on a page
meant something solid, like a sage
wrote something famous. Now I rage,
and rant! I can't, with all my might,
contain my thoughts. And so, I write.
I’m rambling now, but will not tire
until I think that I've inspired
your confidence in little words
like to and fro, the two you heard
go tumbling thusly, carefree by.
I'm glad you gave this verse a try.
So, just before we say goodbye,
that word I wished you - humble.
It's simply mentioned to show a few
of my humble words stumbling by you.
