Ode Poetry Contest Entry

My Thesaurus (a sonnet)

by DragonSkulls

Ode Contest Winner 

     The love of my thesaurus knows no bounds
     Where sweet vicissitude gives precious aid
     So gracefully the assonance resounds
     And versatile its offering in trade

     Reciprocation fosters the diverse
     What treasures correlation will reward
     While subtle changes complement in verse
     With every nuance eagerly explored

     But let us take to heart, it's not alone
     How paramount the dictionary's worth
     Construing every word that falls unknown
     Replete with resolutions to unearth

     In tribute let us witness what's bestowed    
     I'll honor my thesaurus through an ode

I'll admit, half these words I didn't know. Lol.
The lack of punctuation was intentional.
