Word Banquet (2009) age:8

I grow strong

On this diet of words

The most satisfying meal

Feasting on knowledge

Dining each day

On letters

And a poem for dessert

  1. Isabella, this is awesome! I only just found this blog today, and I wish I had found it sooner!! Your poems are wonderful as always, and the clothing is better than some store-bought things I’ve seen! Keep rockin!

  2. I just found your blog, and I wanted to say, I wish that I had found it sooner! You have a wonderful, excellent blog! Keep up the good work! 🙂

  3. This is delightful and also very true. If you love words, they are a feast for daily hunger.
    Very lovely imagery even more so for its simplicity. I can see you have a wonderful future ahead of you in whatever field you chose to follow. 🙂 Thanks for visiting me.

  4. A poetess that I am pleased to share words with. They are a feast aren’t they! Composed beautifully Isabella. My thanks for stopping in and reading ‘Blind Tenets’ look forward to seeing more of your talent. ~ Rose

  5. Poems are more than just a dessert. You eat dessert, and the taste fades, but a poem–a poem you can come back to, the taste will not fade. You can keep a poem with you by memorizing it. And you can write poetry, that delicious fact of life.
    True, even if you read the same poem over, it will not taste exactly the same. But that is the joy in words, that as you change, they are the same, but you can see them differently.
    Does this comment make sense only to me?

  7. Thanks for “liking” my blog, Isabella! Not sure I know exactly what that means (beyond the obvious), but I appreciate the thought.

    You show a lot of talent. Keep up the good work!
