Crevasse is a cool word
that cruises from my mouth.
Frenzied and flailing just flit off my tongue,
leaving me feeling fine.
I love to say the word tenacious–
it makes my teeth tingle,
while archipelago causes me to gasp with astonishment
at my ability to pronounce it at all!
I can’t go past the word ganglion
without getting goose bumps,
and I adore the words ultimatum, ulterior and ultramarine,
although I’d need a dictionary to understand them.
But it really doesn’t matter what they mean:
I simply love words!

I search up the longest word in the world and it was this…
pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis meaning lung disease or something thing!!!? I’m not sure if it is actually a word but I did search it on google and it was a word!!! Love your poems can’t wait to read another!!! Ps. In case you thought I wrote that word down letter by letter I didn’t I just copied the word of google!!!
I love your long word! I’ve never heard it before, but I know ‘pneumon’ means lung, because it is like pneumonia which is a lung infection.
I’m glad you love words too!
I love words because words have meaning! You can say words that are mean and bad, or you can say words that are nice and good!
I much prefer the words that are nice and good! What about you?
I loved how nice and humourous this poem is. I liked how you said that is doesn’t matter what the words mean, I just love words. I also love words. My favourite word has to be Pseudoachondroplasia, as it baffles people when I say it!! What is your favourite word??
That’s a great word!
I liked that poem of yours because it had words that I had no idea existed.Also the words were very hard to say.
Did you look the words up in a dictionary? Then you can use them.
I love learning new words.
I like the poem because I like learning words too!
You like a lot of my poems. Is my poetry book in your school library?
yes I read lots of your poems. But my school library doesn’t have any of your poetry books. And my school is called Trinity Gardens Primary School.
I love words. I cant imagine a world without words. Can you? I sometimes have to look in a google dictionary to pronounce some words and I still cant pronounce some words.Aquamarine is a great color.

Can you imagine a world without words? ‘Cause I certainly can’t
I can’t either!
Words are an awesome thing! They help us alot.
I don’t know what we’d do without words. Which are your favourite words?
