Words Are Her Companions


Words are her companions,
She takes them everywhere:
Stone and pine and blackbird,
Porcupine and bear.
  
Words are her companions,
She hugs them to herself:
Living room, dining room,
Bathroom, kitchen shelf.
  
Words are her companions,
She treasures every one;
Verbs and prepositions
Roll right off her tongue
  
Along with a salacious
Adjective or two;
Words are her companions—
She knows what words can do!
