Marifosque

I write with quill and ink

Speak Softly

Let us rather speak softly,

Deep in few ideal words,

Than speak quite hastily ,

Plenty with petty vocabulary

The gift of tongues given,

Was with a single purpose,

Only to speak with love,

And harm none in process

You shall hear no hurt

Escape these simple lips,

Even strong storms dissipate

Quelled with tender terms,

Spoken well mean nothing yet

Everything to the hearer,

Love spoken unclad in gossamer,

Leaves truths selfless in desire

Commune gentle with another,

Like kissing a passionate lover,

Bloom words like a flower,

To gracefully open doors

Leading to an honest soul,

Then let words stay in peace,

Resting full in happy hearts,

Where love will grow eternal

Happy Valentines Day!
