The Way With Words

By Miriam Poupko

Words are wayward things with a will of their own
And, being wayward, they will not stay
But will wander and stray
Will wander and wonder
And all the while very happily
Whistling and winding –
Wishing without finding
Until quite suddenly with no warning
They will walk up against a wall
And have nothing to say.
