The words are
Unbroken
Ring clear
Sound fine
Once learned, absorbed
They’re yours
And they’re mine.

Words
And their meanings
Their sounds
Their stress
Flexible ability
To mould
To express.

Magic within the Alpha, Omega
Twenty-six letters
Foretold
Manipulate, massage, mesmerise;
Stories from us
Will unfold.

If you got to the end here, well done. A wordsmith, after my own heart!
