House Of Words by Sean Theall

It is built one syllable at a time.
a sentence for structure, or
a loose fitting rhyme.

Those sentences form

poems and from poems
into books. Some written
on a lake or a babbling
brook.

The structure of this house

is the poet's frame of mind,
the ones he writes
are one of a kind.

Up in the attic you can find 300

pieces or more, some were written
in a silent roar.

A poet's world never ends, where his

next word or sentence comes from it
all depends.

The house is closing and the lights

are going out...
The poet will continue on
working without any doubt.
