Verbs are dead when

Enshrined in a dictionary.

They come into being when

We breathe them into life.

 

 

Nouns are clothes

Embodying things seen or unseen.

We are clad as children

Parents, teachers, and else.

 

 

Prepositions are nomads

Roaming a savanna –

Searching for nouns

To keep warm in winter.

 

 

Adverbs are playwrights

Wielding their magical quills

And setting scenes

For the play of A-Z.

 

 

Adjectives are painters

Pumping a river of hues

To characterize different worlds –

Real, surreal, impressionist or else.

 

 

Connectives are doctors

Performing generative operations

To extend a sentence's life,

Before Death drops a period.

 

Auxiliaries are pianists

Playing chamber music

Under different modes imparting

Certainty, probability, or obligation.

 

 

Determiners are the GPS,

Locating and identifying

A target's state – definite or indefinite

Or given or new.

 

 

Participles are retired soldiers –

Failing to fight again but

Retelling and spinning tales

Of their glorious past as verbs.

 

 

Subordinators are social class makers

Nicely marrying each clause

But cruelly drawing a line

Between what is main and subordinate.

 

 

Exclamations are Santa Claus,

Rarely knocking on our door.

But once visiting, they

Refresh us by surprise!
