A Poet in a Word


I found this quote from a YouTube narration by Ned Johnson as part of his "My Life Story" webinar series, referenced below:

A Poet in a Word

I'll sing a song so listen as I'm singing to the tune,
Then close your eyes and look inside my mind.
Peer into a picture and perhaps you will perceive,
That it's just a piece of person turned to paint
And remember as you hear this,
If my meaning should seem blurred,

That a poem's....just a a word.

“Why, that’s true! I am a perfect, unlimited gull!” Jonathan opened his eyes asking, "Where are we?” The Elder Chiang said, “We’re on some planet with a green sky and a double star for a sun.” Jonathan made a scree of delight. “IT WORKS!" “Well, of course it works, Jon,” said Chiang. “It always works, when you know what you’re doing." (and even when you don't)
