> The Word Party:
> 
> Loving words clutch crimson roses,
> Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
> Sly words come dressed up as foxes,
> short words stand on cardboard boxes,
> Common words tell jokes and gabble,
> Complicated words play Scrabble,
> Swear words stamp around and shout,
> Hard words stare each other out,
> Foreign words look lost and shrug,
> Careless words trip on the rug,
> Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
> Code words carry secret folders,
> Silly words flick rubber bands,
> Hyphenated words hold hands,
> Strong words show off, bending metal,
> Sweet words call each other 'petal',
> Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
> Till at last the morning comes.
> Kind words give out farewell posies . .
> Snap! The dictionary closes.
