Sentimental: The Daily Prompt

Sentimental: The Daily Prompt Monday Morning March 7, 2016

“Does that mean that writers are grand manipulators of language?”











There are sentimental writers who have a gift of touching memories, similar to musicians who create a melody that resonates with a central core of some living beings.

Today, it’s about writers who have a poetic gift and know how to use words in such a manor that it rivets, that vibrates, that illuminates or that simply touches a special place in their reading participant’s memories that are dear to them.

Lets take for instance this excerpt from the famous poem: Imitations of Immortality by William Wordsworth. 

Intimations of Immortality


William Wordsworth

What though the radiance which was once so bright 
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour 
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;


My deductions regarding writers, and must add that I hope I’m included in the writer group, are that we who write have a gift of using words to stir emotions of our readers.

My last thought is a question that perplexes me. Does this mean that writers are grand manipulators of language?

I wonder…


Thank you for reading my thoughts on sentimentality this Monday morning. Have a slender week…
