"the poetry of words"

Quote of the Week:
When I feel inclined to read poetry I take down my Dictionary. The poetry of words is quite as beautiful as that of sentences. The author may arrange the gems effectively, but their shape and lustre have been given by the attrition of ages.
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809-1894)
