this is a heartfelt message to you, dear friend,
Let us look at this crazy tongue, let us see how it bends
I sit here with this keyboard in my hand,
Thinking of words that will expand,
I am often feeling, about language, true,
About its power, old and new.
How words and spelling, how they cast spells,
Which do not always find you in a way that is well.
YOU may often hear me say,
How tongue and language changes in many ways,
How the words we use today,
May have had a different meaning yesterday.
