Words are akin to stone building blocks
And when they are used to build
Communication becomes a reality.

Words can be used to paint various
Aspects of life or indeed creation
As a whole…

So gather words required while digging
The field of life… and as you compose
Make sure that the paint is appropriate.

For by adhering to the latter you are on the
Way to becoming a master painter with words-
Indeed a poet of renown! And here I think
Of Patrick Kavanagh whose roots grew
Near to Monaghan Town.
