Beautiful words can blossom
From verdant land, mellifluous
When uttered loquaciously
With a plethora vowels
Rolling and rippling through the air,
An aurora of words, speckling
A midnight azure sky.
I was listening to an audiobook the other day and the lady said the word patina. It was a word I don’t hear very often and for some reason, it just sounded so pretty, and it got me thinking about all the other words that just roll gorgeously off the tongue.
I know the English langueage is a mish mash of lots of different languages, but I do think that there is something so appealing about words that are obviously from a different place. They just sound so exotic.
I just wanted to write something with lots of those words in it. I don’t even know if it makes much sense – but it does sound really nice if you say it with a Frech accent…
