The language is a well of knowledge

CAM00104-2
Language is a well of knowledge.
It is spoken and also studied at college.
I use it everyday and everywhere,
But I’ve never looked at it with due care.

I’ve been studying it since school,
But even now I can’t remember each rule.
Language is like a puzzle
And here even a dog won’t nuzzle.

God gave us this gift.
The gift is powerful, fair, and has no sift.
With language one can bring in pleasure
Or sorrow if he doesn’t want or doesn’t see the measure.

The language is also like an ocean:
It’s deep, full of good things and is always in motion.
We need it like grass needs dew.
Thanks to language I write; thanks to it I speak to You.
