Classic and Contemporary Poetry
GOSSIP, by LEXIE DEAN ROBERTSON Poet's Biography
First Line: Before I knew how cruel
Last Line: For fear they will not sing.
Before I knew how cruel
Just common talk can be,
I thought that words were singing things
With colors like the sea.
But since I've felt their caustic lash
And know how they can sting,
I hold my breath when words go by
For fear they will not sing.
