beautypoem #4

when we were kids the magazine
sat review asked famous folk their
most beautiful words or phrases in
the english tongue franklin p adams
headed his list with “cellar door”
many years later author ursula k
leguin in her book the farthest shore
named the island at the world’s end
“selidor” she surely thought no one
would make the connection but I did
I did now for me the most beautiful
word in the language is “listen” —
just “listen” —
then silence
listen . . .
silence
listen . . .
