Sometimes a word

Sometimes

Touching many or touching none,

the joy it brings just touching one –

with a torrent of words cleverly writ, 

from the coolest phrases in ancient Sanskrit

or perhaps a scribe in a guttural foreign word

is the sweetest thing anybody had heard

And the English language with it’s redonkulous rules

where no matter how good you are it still makes you a fool

sometimes

  2. “And the English language with it’s redonkulous rules
    where no matter how good you are it still makes you a fool
    sometimes” – this gave me a hearty laugh (haha😅). I said to myself oh, this is so me and English language, the relationship we are in is right and wrong, incorrect and correct, smart and fool.😉
