The eloquence of words is lost
Eloquence that charmed a world
Of light and love and fantasy.
Words no longer live with feeling
Is this what we have become
Lost, without the power of words
The power of words has fragmented
Power that filled imaginations
Of hope and wonder in their lost adventure.
Words no longer drive with such conviction
Has this reduced our ability to evoke
Fragmented without the beauty of words
The beauty of words is hidden
Beauty that took you to a world
Of unparalleled heights of emotion.
Words no longer used with such precision
Is there still some world of light and wonder
Hidden within the eloquence of words
