Speech -/- Eloquence

3:11
Speech

Pleasant language imparts pleasure
Yesterday… today… tomorrow

Engage intellect before articulation
Inreign unworthy thoughts

Perfection seekers avoid uttering
Slanders, curses, obscenities

When pleasant praises please
Whyever instigate argument

***

Senseless speech prating incessantly
Better left abandoned

Buffoons crudely bluster words,
Cerebrals converse coolly

Burns of vindicative tongues
Leave bitter scars


3:12
Eloquence

Softened tongues luscious fruit,
Piquish speak, unripened

Accents of virtuous voices:
Pleasant, mellifluous, cheerful

Speech, perfumed & persuasive,
Surpasses perfect talent

Pillars of peerless speech;
Eminence, excellence, effervescence

***

About cheerful, intelligent speakers
People gather swiftly

With soft, useful words
Virtue conquers cunning

Eloquence amidst low assembly
Nectar filling gutters
