Calling out to wordsmiths living near to me
Come and trade in language, your words I'd like to see.
Bring your pen and paper and sit beside my chair
Write your favorite words, the ones you think most fair.
In return I'll grant you praise, or possibly critique.
In hopes of raising up the bar, I would not have you meek.
I hope you'll return the favor and show me how to grow
As a crafter of what preserves everything we know.
