In Words

Words brought to this mind
What is perceived as harsh or kind
Be it thought of time present or past
In words its memory shall be cast
When a feeling bears no define
The description be ever sublime
When a knowing in silence heard
Spoken be the divine WORD.

Rose Marie Raccioppi

The Day Dream, 1880, .
Dante Gabriel Rossetti, 1828-1882.
