for Labor Day (a re-post)

wordhash © j.i. kleinbergTaking it easy on Labor Day, I offer this, which I posted a couple of years ago:
My labor is of the mind. I collect words: net them from the air, capture them from books, dig them from dictionary mines.
I labor at sentences, take the measure of nouns, verb them into rows, mortar them with conjunctions, prepositions, adverbs.
I labor at poems, each essential word shouldered upon the one before, dry-stone walls mortared with metaphor.
This is good work, performed mostly alone in a union of honorable laborers.
