The Ten Most Beautiful Words
                                                              by Ralph Fletcher

           I saw a list of the ten
           most beautiful words
           in the English language:

                     dawn, hush, mist, lullaby,
                     tranquil, luminous, chimes,
                     golden, melody, murmuring.

  I liked them all, the sound of them,
  especially murmuring.

  It made me picture
                                 across still water.

  And now I’ve got
              ten shiny new coins
               jingling in my pocket.
