How To Write

a stone fence

In Old Vermont there stand some fences,
Built by Colonists for their defenses.
Made from stones pulled from the ground,
No cement holds them, yet they are bound.

If you would fain a writer be,
Ponder those structures carefully.
Choose your words as Artisan did his stone,
And your work may last when you are gone.

William's Whimsical Words:

Why write? Because you must.
