Word Builder

Begin your new construction
with twenty-six letters.
Hammer a through z into words.
Pile your words like blocks
into sentence towers--
measure some tall,
saw others short.
Mortar each sentence
with punctuation,
then frame your sentences
into paragraph villages,
stack your paragraphs
into chapter cities.
Keep on building
words into sentences
sentences into paragraphs,
paragraphs into chapters
until you have created
a whole world of book.

~Ann Whitford Paul
