Bob Hostetler here, offering another prayer for writers:
I use too many adjectives
and adverbs as I write;
I want the lift a good noun gives
to help a phrase take flight,
like dandelion, balustrade,
and cricket, poppy, trough,
and foghorn, meadow, cannonade,
assassin, scythe, and toff,
and more, I pray, from You who gave
each item, object, thing,
and every single noun I have
to make my writing sing.
Bob’s latest book is The Bard and the Bible, available via www.bardandbible.com or at fine Christian retailers everywhere.
